King Isosceles Firebowls featured in Montreal Home Magazine


This stunning project by Montreal designer Endrée Villeneuve of Vision enVert uses three King Isosceles Sculptural Firebowls™ to great effect. The firebowls flank a pool on stone pillars, with gorgeous waterfalls feeding into the pool to create a soothing soundscape. Built on the shores of the St. Lawrence River in Notre Dame de I’lle Perrot, the home makes extensive use of outdoor space. Sliding glass doors open the lower level of the house to an outdoor kitchen and the pool area for entertaining, while various levels of terraces provide private retreats.

This home is one of the best examples I’ve yet seen of combining fire and water features using a set of firebowls.

Throughout the project, lighting was one of the designers primary concerns— lighting, windows and even wall and ceiling treatments were designed to minimize the barrier between indoors and outdoors. Another primary concern was preserving the environment and natural beauty of the site.
