This House In Canada Was Designed To Enjoy Views Of The Forest And The River

This home in Cap-à-l'Aigle, Quebec, and designed by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architects, is named the 'Altaïr House'. Altaïr means "The Flying Eagle", which makes sense when the house is designed in the shape of a 'V', and has long facades that are suspended over the surrounding nature.
