A ski chalet comes with certain associations. Adjectives like snug, cozy, fire-lit all spring to mind. And then there’s this chalet.

At 5,200 square feet, this ultra-modern ski home outside of Quebec City isn’t small, but it’s got its own breed of coziness, including a very stylish wood burning fireplace.

Designed by Montreal studio Thellend Fortin Architects, the Long Horizontals house is conceived as a series of boxy volumes that form grayscale Tetris blocks made of glass and anthracite gray wood.

The home’s monochromatic palette is intended to contrast against the green trees and white snow that surround it. Inside, it’s more of the same. Gray concrete floors meet white walls and light wood detailing.

Though the house is filled with stylish charm including a large, open kitchen and multiple terraces, the centerpiece of the sprawling home is the dining room, where a glassy cantilevered box juts out over the slope, giving visitors an impressive backdrop during their meal.
