We were approached by our clients during a housing convention in Sherbrooke. They already had a clear idea of the layout for their future home and retirement project. The living areas and the master suite would be on the ground floor, so they could grow old and live on one level. As for the guests, they would sleep upstairs.
We carried a plan they had sketched out and made a few suggestions to optimise both the design and the construction costs. The openings, which are meticulously placed according to the Mont Orford, stand out in all their glamour against a sober architectural style. One’s gaze flows across the house, from the outside to the inside, and out again, through perfectly aligned windows in the cathedral space. A symphony between nature and structure, for which the final note is played by a private courtyard with a fully covered patio, a terrace, and beautiful gardens.
