SAINT-ANDRÉ RESIDENCE

Year of construction : 2016
Location : Montreal (Qc), Canada
Area : 2150 sqf
APPAREIL architecture has taken up the challenge of building a living space across four floors inside a particularly narrow and deep building. This former triplex in Plateau Mont-Royal was transformed into a single-family residence, adapted to the needs of a young family. Service spaces were concentrated in the center of the residence so that the living spaces could benefit from being situated within the reach of light. To optimize the link between these different spaces, the team created an opening between the ground floor and the first floor. A friendly link is now made between the kitchen, the dining room and the living room. The huge windows that are now featured on the rear facade allow these three rooms to be bathed in sun and connected to the backyard. In terms of furniture and lighting, the team chose to do business with various local craftsmen.

“We transformed a small triplex into a single-family house to suit a family of four. Our project was a bit unusual for Montreal: a narrow house, all vertical. APPAREIL made us many creative proposals that have highlighted these characteristics. We have been very involved in all stages of the transformation and APPAREIL has guided and advised us well, certainly avoiding several errors. But above all, we love the result: a very luminous, clean and highly functional house, where everything has its place, and everyone, its space. ” – Pierre-Luc and Marie-Julie, owners.
