New House on the Ottawa River

Aylmer, QC

A clean, simple & modern looking house which lovingly cascades down the slope of the site towards the river views, breezes and sun. Flex house principles are incorporated into a design that can allow the house to be duplexed in the future. Bay windows create great play room nooks and office spaces as min-room within rooms. Douglas fir timbers support a mono-pitch pine ceiling that soars above the room dividers indicating the true volume of the built form. Smaller rooms within rooms are terra cotta "objects" in space which complement the exotic African possessions collected from a lifetime of traveling.
