Project Description

Right in the city of Sherbrooke, this charming english residence is landscaped with noble materials which blend seamlessly and enhance the warmth of the house.The bluestone and the clay pavers are sober, chic and durable at the same time. An interesting design detail is the drainage system for the roof runoff which is infiltrated in a linear river rock bed and expelled underground. The symmetrical swim area, which is a little lower and and remote from the main areas, is intimate due to a beautiful wooden fence. When open, the double door of that fence invite the owners for a swim opening a large centered view on the swim area.
