Located on the shores of Lake Memphremagog in the Eastern Townships, the House Lachance is a secondary residence designed for two clients who are native to the region, and currently oscillate between Montreal and Magog.

The clients came to us to be surprised and to have something from a design point of view they didn’t quite understand. (more…)
