About this Project

The Riverhouse is nestled at the edge of a river, surrounded by the tranquil beauty of Prince Edward Island’s waterways and rolling hills. Its architecture and siting offer breathtaking views of the river, embankment and dynamic landscape. With a focus on a form that enriches livability with functionality, the design strategy for this home can best be described as a balanced negotiation between traditional building methods, forms, and modern achievements in architecture. It is a uniquely modern form, rooted in the style and materiality of neighboring farm structures. The house has been planned around an open plan concept; oriented to specific views, while enjoying the benefits of passive solar gain and natural ventilation.
