The street and the main entrance are at the highest level and the basement is facing the river at the lowest level of the land including a pool and a nice garden.
The first vertical volume includes a garage on the ground floor, upstairs bedrooms with a river-view living-room in cantilever stay above a basement workshop. The second horizontal volume includes entry, kitchen, dining room and bathroom on the ground floor. There is also a guest bedroom, a washroom and a mechanical/electrical rooms in the basement. The roof of the horizontal volume, includes a higher terrace overlooking the Rivière-des-Prairies and the south.
Many outdoor areas are arranged at different levels to allow occupants to enjoy the views and solar orientation.
The outer covering is made of black metal panels and wooden inserts.
