For a vacation home, the Lac Superieur Residence is a structure full of grace and visual appeal. Standing on a sloping hill in the Laurentian Mountains of Quebec, Canada, this boxy contemporary abode looks a lot like a strategic stacking of squares. Designed by Saucier + Perrotte architects, the award winning building features a simple, clear minimalist design that divides it in three functional areas used for sleeping and recreational activities. With large floor-to-roof glass windows, sleek interiors and amazing structural elegance, the Lac Superieur Residence is a perfect escape from the bustle of city life. [via TheCoolHunter]
