Jutting horizontally from a cliff, with floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe its interior in light, the m.o.r.e Cabin seems to defy gravity. The off-grid cabin floats in the treetops on the shore of a lake at an isolated location in La Pêche, Quebec.


For its architect, Associate Professor Paul Kariouk, of the Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism, the cabin is not only a retreat from city life, its modern aesthetic is part of a vision for a more sustainable construction industry.

Kariouk’s vision for the future of architecture has earned numerous awards, including a Merit Award at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) New York 2024 Design Awards.


As the first full-time faculty member at the Azrieli School to also operate a professional office, Kariouk seeks to imbue the pragmatic approach that a successful architectural practice demands.
