Playing With Volumes: The Black and White Connaught Residence in Montreal
Connaught Residence, located in Notre Dame de Grâce, Montréal, was a dull, concrete house built in the ’50s that needed an substantial upgrade. The owners, a growing family, wanted a more spacious and contemporary home. They also mentioned that they would love to keep a certain harmony and the new design had to blend somehow with the old house’s original design line. Naturehumaine, the firm responsible with the renewal, after a careful analysis, found the solution for this problem. In order to expand the living space, the architecture firm decided to start with an extension. The intervention also consisted in re-organising the interior, to make it more comfortable and inspiring.
