An extended clan, separated by business, gathers for holidays at a forested getaway near Sutton, Quebec.

When a Canadian financier's career took him to Asia, far from his parents in Montreal, the two generations laid plans for a vacation house that would bring them together on holidays. For total immersion in each other's company, the retreat, a blackened stack of boxes designed by Les Architectes FABG, is quieted away in the woods around the Vermont border.
