Veranda House in Boucherville

Location: Boucherville, Montreal, Quebec, Canada – south shore of the Saint Lawrence River

Boucherville is a city in the Montérégie region

Design: Blouin Tardif Architecture

A single-family home located in a new forest development, the Veranda House is designed to be intimate and discreet. In addition to guiding the landscape design, the site’s trees serve as a privacy screen. On the street side, openings mark only the entrance and certain services.

Veranda House

On the south side, the house makes the most of the ample private space surrounding the veranda. The heart of the house is a series of spaces that open onto the yard: the kitchen, dining room and double-height living room.

Veranda House

The concept of ground level is fundamental to this house, because the first floor is flush with the ground, creating a strong indoor/outdoor dynamic. Large sliding doors allow the interior and exterior to intermingle, as does a continuous floor covering. Cedar ceilings give the interior an outdoorsy feel.

The palette of exterior materials is simple and neutral: local clay brick and cedar. Transparency again plays a role in the exterior design, particularly with the glass barrier around the pool.

On the second floor, the master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom with transparent partitions and a large covered deck resembling an aerie facing the woods and the water below.
