Erected in the Canadian countryside, in the heart of the development Fraternité-sur-Lac, the Spahaus contemporary chalets are a wonderful human adventure. It is the creative meeting – for a perfect balance between inspiration and Scandinavian Zen – with the passionate developer and architect duo Loukas Yiacouvakis and Marie-Claude Hamelin, of the award-winning architectural design firm YH2. The design firm marries modern residences in wood and concrete with a natural experience in the Canadian Laurentians, making a clear shift away from traditional log lodges, the mythical Canadian cabin or plywood-heavy alpine cottages.

Founded in 2008, v2com – the international newswire specialized in design and architecture – is a quick and efficient tool for the media to facilitate the discovery of design news, and a very affordable tool for designers to promote their work.

In this extensive conversation between Christian Larsen and photographer Vincent Fournier, we learn about the aesthetics and interests behind ‘Brasília, A Time Capsule’, a series which investigates the architecture, landscape, and people of Brasília (Brazil).

Collaborator of our sister gallery Spazio Nobile, Matthias Kohn, developed a project about home, nature, and hospitality. In essence, the concept is based on the idea of placing furniture, most often used in private interior settings, thus adapted for this type of use, and suggesting comfort, in exterior settings, where the impact of the piece on the respective surroundings is allowed to develop fully.
