Modular house design in the middle of the forest

A dark red one Modular house in the middle of the forest in Canada impresses with its innovative design. Designed by Hill-Maheux Cottage, this unusual holiday home was built as a container system. It bears no resemblance to the traditional mountain hut, but is characterized by innovative construction and bold color, which gives the house an elegant look and has proven to be very practical. Color and shape are combined in a creative way and make a clear statement about the character and preferences of the owner.

Dark red modular house with an elegant look


The dark red color of the facade from Modular house ensures that the house does not go unnoticed. The house was designed as a modern retreat from the city’s hustle and bustle. The family specified a private building, so the walls shield the residents’ privacy. The interior remains hidden from strangers, and casual visitors can only marvel at the exciting geometric volumes from the outside.

The focus in the interior remains on the needs of the family – namely that a comfortable and stylish interior design creates a homely atmosphere. In contrast to the red walls, the interior was dated Module houses built-in large glass walls that allow plenty of light into the house. Strategic sliding glass doors open the house to the forest and offer beautiful views of the surroundings. The composition in the interior is uncomplicated – simple furniture construction, but in strong colors. The curved walls in the bedroom contrast with the otherwise angular shapes. The bedroom, bathroom and storage space are protected in a well-protected module, while the living room and kitchen appear more open.
