bushy house, niagara-on-the-lake, on

Project Details:          Rural residence, 2700 sq. ft.

                               Completed: Fall, 1998                                                           Featured in OAA Design Perspectives Magazine

Features:                  Niagara-on-the-Lake is a historic town which was burned by the invading American army during the War of                                      1812. Rebuilt after the war, the architecture of the town retains most of it's 19th century colonial architecture. The                                 problem we saw with most of the new homes being built in the town today is that they are lifted from the pages                                   of house design magazines and do not fit well into the town's existing colonial fabric. Bushy House was                                             designed to fit within this historic context and to act as a guide to the fact that new homes could successfully use                                 this historic “style”.
