TWO HOUSES, ONE FAMILY
With a privileged view of the Baie-des-Chaleurs in Caraquet, Canada, Les Jumelles are two small sister constructions linked in order to create a single family holiday house. With a sober architecture that merges with the surroundings, the two-volume work individually. The sister houses stand parallel to each other and are only connected by a glazed corridor that offers a panoramic view of the sea. The first entity contains the common spaces, while the second one regroups the rooms and the garage.
Les Jumelles were developed by YH2 Architecture and are both a peaceful retreat in the middle of nature and an architectural landmark perfectly placed in the context of the historical village that is Caraquet.
