Between the subdued furniture and gorgeous white design, we think the aesthetic of the Century Old Montreal House Addition has a certain special staying power.
Bound by difficult plot conditions, architect Marc-André of Naturehumaine found the perfect canvas for innovation. The firm could not build upward so they built outward. They could not build downward so they built in-between. The solution comes in the form of a sunken living room and cantilevered master bedroom, accessible through the new double-height dining area.
The clients were preparing to welcome a new child into their home, and these smart solutions helped create the extra space they needed. The smart Century Old Montreal House Addition was so successful that it even netted the Marcel-Parizeau Award for small budget projects.
Some of the most interesting interior decor features include a dining table and bench constructed of wood salvaged from a wall removed during the expansion, colorful artwork by Nicolas Grenier, chic pendant lights by Nicolas Gervais, and dining room floor panels to create the look of concrete in the dining room.
