Beautiful Home Built near the San Lorenzo River
By Magaly • Oct 17, 2018
Surrounded by green hills and the San Lorenzo River in Sorel, this house has a refreshing view that gives color. This home has a total area of some 418 square meters and was uyndertaken by the architectural firm DESK architects who delegated the project to its architect Etienne Duclos.
The residence is programmed in 3 large volumes for 3 precise functions; the service block, the day block and the night block. The service block and day block are covered with wooden cladding, well anchored to the floor to join the interior and exterior. The more nocturnal block is closed with black steel and placed in the other two blocks, like the containers loaded on the cargo ships that parade daily in the river.
It is positioned to benefit from the natural topography of the site. From the road, the long and narrow land, it is possible to reach the river. This characteristic determines the location of the residence; an opportunity to have a garden level completely open on the river.
This residence of G + C, with volumes and simple lines, is organized efficiently and offers open spaces for a young family.
