Welcome to our gallery featuring the gorgeous Maison Terrebonne by la SHED Architecture.
This home was specifically designed to meet the needs of a single person living alone.
The spaces are both intimate and open, set over a small footprint but with a design that opens each space up to another. This design ensures that you never feel cut off from any part of the home.
Large windows and sliding glass doors allow plenty of natural light to flood into the house. The sliding glass doors also provide multiple outdoor spaces to relax outside of the home.
The interior of this home features split levels, that all open up to each other. This kind of design helps to maintain a clear distinction between the actual intimate spaces and communal areas.
The central staircase in this home is accessible directly from the garage. This centralized unit helps to divide the separate rooms in the house, while not completely cutting off any specific space.
Up on the top level, there is a private suite for the home owner, with a hidden bathroom that has clean lines and plenty of space. There is no door, but the configuration of the walls preserves privacy.
The bright colors inside the house help to reflect the abundance of natural light. Making the interior of this home very fresh and crisp.
The large windows also provide wide views of the surrounding forest. They also contribute to the open concept of the house, making the rooms feel larger than they really are.
Take a look through our gallery and experience these artful images. You might just see something that is worth incorporating into your own space!
This large widow is actually located directly next to the garage door and entryway. The hall wraps around and leads up the stairs and into the main levels of the house. This large window welcomes those entering into the home, and sends them off with a wonderful view.
From this angle, we are looking inside the entryway from the garage. We can see the light from the previous window shining into the hall, and there is a convenient shelving unit and computer dest tucked in the corner.
Taking a step away from the house, we get a full sense of how the entryway shares an opening with the garage. The open ended garage is consistent with the home’s interior design.
As we enter the home and start up the stairs, we are greeted by light wood grain steps and a wonderful view outside the window across the house. The high ceiling helps to really open up the space and welcome anyone who enters.
Here we have the first level. Featuring a Chaise Lounge sofa, green leaved plants to help accent the space, and light golden floors beneath everything. On the far end of the room is the opening to the kitchen.
This image gives us a wonderful idea of how this house has been designed to be open and free flowing. The kitchen is spacious, and features a large island containing the sink and stove. From this one angle, we also get a view of the stairs leading up to the top level, and can even see the entryway as well.
This shot from within the kitchen gives us a taste of some of the views that the homeowner will get to experience during the changing seasons. The light wood island matches that of the floor throughout the house, while an eat in extension is located near the edge of the island.
Moving back out into the main floor, we get a better view of the living room, complete with a wooden rocking chair and large sofa. There are recesses in the walls to provide shelving. Also, notice the exposed upper level to the rear of the room.
This angle reveals the large “block” which is the central unit which this house was designed around. The staircase wraps up and around it, and into the private bedroom suite. However, it does not extend to the ceiling and there is an opening to the bedroom on the other side, giving this home its open atmosphere.
The bedroom is modest, and minimalistic. A rocking chair sits in the natural light from the glass slider door, and faces away from the opening to the lower level. The bed is across from the slider, which opens up to a small outdoor patio.
Notice that the bathroom does not have a door, so it was important to design the walls so that one could still have privacy in the bathroom. Small white square tiles cover the entire floor and walls in this space.
As we enter the full bathroom space, it is much larger than one might expect. This bathroom features a large sink, with an open shower area.
This view from the bathroom entrance displays that even when standing directly before the entrance of the bathroom, the configuration of walls provides sufficient privacy.
The lighting in the garage and entryway make this exterior feel welcoming even as the sun goes down. The large windows do expose parts of the interior, but they are strategically placed as not to reveal too much so that those inside will feel exposed.
