Maison Glissade (Ski Chalet)
Set on a narrow lot in a private ski club development in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada, this hpuse is concieved as a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional chalet. Its form retains the convention of a gable roof, yet is reduced to an elegant two storey volume in which the top floor slides forward, engaging an adjacent ski hill on axis with the chalet. The cantilever of the upper volume embodies a kinetic energy likened to that of a leading ski or a skier propelled in a forward trajectory. The lower level counter balances this movement with a rhythmic pattern of solid and void.

Obviously smaller (3 meters) but this could be the central gable end balcony with some glass behind .... downstairs could be slightly set back from the other two gable ends but open air on ground level at the same depth as the balcony above. ... ?
