Bushy House

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario


Bushy House was designed as a private residence and a Bed & Breakfast. The design has the Bed & Breakfast guests to occupy on the  lower level and the owners on the upper level providing privacy to each. The design goal was to create a new home in the historic style of the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake as an example of what could be achieved in new construction and hopefully encourage others to avoid the transplanting 0f typical contemporary residential subdivision designs into this local. The home takes advantage of the ravine setting to allow the B&B to occupy the lower level and provides it with it’s own private garden for the enjoyment of the guests.


In the effort to create a feeling of age, reclaimed doors, hardware, fireplace mantels and claw foot bathtubs were used throughout along with pine flooring and traditional double hung windows. Every door within the house is unique. The exterior cladding is painted cement board and natural cedar shingles which allows the home to fit comfortably into the property.
