La Luge is a secondary home lying in the midst of the forest in La Conception, Canada. It was designed by Yiacouvakis Hamelin Architectes. Nestled on its site, surrounded by dense vegetation preserving the house’s privacy, La Luge integrates a private spa which occupies almost a third of the useable area.

While La Luge is as a compact scheme meant to accommodate a large number of guests, the house’s spaces can be reconfigured into diverse geometries: using large sliding doors, the users may transform the children bedroom into a playground or a guest bedroom. The project is made out of two embracing volumes set on different levels –one dark, one light, thus creating distinct spaces, freely merging one into the other. In this wood shell made of essences of cedar, oak and walnut, the atmosphere is soft but bright, soothing.

We've featured French photographer Jean Baptiste Courtier previously on the blog. Now he drew our attention to his latest work entitled 'Escrime' ('Fencing') where he showed a couple of fencers doing ballet outdoors. The contrast between the veiled fencers and the classy ballet is what first strikes the viewer though if you start to think about it, the sports have more in common than one might think.
