here is ‘the room’, a little house designed by the montreal-based architectural practice l’abri. being shot all over quebec, the object is part of the documentary about a couple traveling in a room with a different view every morning. never knowing what magnificent view they will wake up to, the two travelers take us on a journey filled with surprises along quebec’s most gorgeous and authentic features.
the house was put in the lake
for this unique project, l’abri was responsible for the design and production of the room, unusual star of this exceptional short film. the small structure had to be iconic and comfortable, but also lightweight and solid enough to withstand its incredible journey. it can be taken apart entirely.
a room with many views of the lake
the aluminum frame and siding facilitate dismantling and manual transport, while being strong enough for helicopter and road travel. the wooden interior features minimalist lines and makes this small space warm and welcoming.
a room with many views of the sea
the removable side wall panels create large windows that open up on the surroundings. the front panel opens up completely; it projects the room’s guests into the landscapes and frames theirs views on the rich and infinite features of quebec’s territory.

the couple had no idea where they were going to wake up
the view was magnificent every single morning
