“The owner and commissioners of this house were very fond of the conversions projects, duplex cottages and small residential architecture house and decided to create one in Québec” explained Eric Gagnon.

This is therefore quite a rare product for Québec, where urban density don’t necessarily force builders and architects to be creative with smaller lots. The L shape building formed by the original duplex and the added extension creates a confidential and private courtyard.

“A major landscaping investment was made to achieve a costa-rica inspired type of garden, which requires very little upkeep. Greens and trees like the beautiful Magnolia are hence allowed to sprawl and grow to envelop the garden in nature and shade.”

The intricate shape of the constructions also allows for multiple levels, passerelles, private rooms and patios on all floors. Notice the green roof and vegetable garden extending from the master bedroom, creating a indoor-outdoor flow.

“All these different levels create much intimacy in the wings, while the center common areas and the kitchen are huge and perfect to gather for meals and entertainment. It’s very comfortable for a family and their guests to stay over” told us Eric Gagnon.
