Delordinaire High House

Delordinaire is an architecture studio out of Paris and Montreal that builds ordinary buildings in exceptional ways. Take their High House in Quebec, for instance. Rather than build what many would consider a standard winter chalet on the ground with views of the Mont Saint Anne, Delordinaire utilized elevated stilt construction and an asymmetrical slope in the roof to create something truly unique. Not only do the stilts create a protected ground floor area (complete with outdoor stove and awesome entryway stairs) they raise the house above the tree line for uninterrupted views and sunlight all day. The house is built with white concrete panels and corrugated steel roof panels that make it blend in or completely stand out from the surrounding landscape depending on the season. The only change we’d even think about making to this superb structure is adding hardware to retract the stairs drawbridge style in case of apocalyptic incursion.

The coat rack is a necessary part of any entryway, but the functionality can get bogged down in all the coats, hats, scarves and bags that inevitably get stacked on each of the rungs or hooks. You won’t have that problem with The Switchboard coat rack. The 30″ long triangular rack includes 25 triangular wood hooks that rest against the wall until you fold them down to hold each of your daily items you don’t need for the moment. Made from beech wood, Switchboard is as stylish as it is functional.
