Vaudreuil House
Completed 2001

Vaudreuil House, with a view to Lake Of Two Mountains, is designed to take maximum advantage of its site, with a rear south-facing courtyard sheltered from winter winds and shaded from the summer sun. A front motor court was used to reduce the impact of a three-car garage from the street. The open plan living spaces are laid out around the sunken living room with its cathedral ceiling, fireplace, and generous window bay that opens onto the wooded site. Private spaces are provided for the teenagers upstairs and for the couple in a separate ground floor wing that helps define the courtyard. This project was completed in collaboration with engineers Calculatec and with general contractor Les Constructions Daniel Petrari.
