Located in an historical building in Old Montreal, this two thousand square foot pied à terre is the result of merging two adjacent lofts into one spectacular space. The goal was to maximize the common living areas, while creating three separate bedrooms for this young family. Contemporary materials were introduced to contrast the exposed brick walls and various other original architectural features. Sliding frosted glass panels create visual interest and replace conventional doors to bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bathroom is minimalist and its organic materials create warmth and calm. Vintage industrial objects maintain an authentic loft feel, and contrast the contemporary furnishings. The oversized chalkboard wall in one of the children’s bedrooms adds colour, ever-changing texture and drama. The subtle décor throughout the loft pays homage to this very unique historical space.
