Berri Residence transformed into a contemporary home, Canada

Contemporary-Property-Design-Montréal-Canada-00

Berri Residence is a 2012 project completed by Montréal-based architectural practice naturehumaine. The firm completely redesigned the interiors and added an extension. The contemporary single family home can be found in Montréal, Canada.

According to the architects: “A couple with a passion for contemporary architecture and two young children wanted an extension to their 1940s duplex. Their main desire was to create a dining room that would become the heart of the house, where family discussions take place.

“At the center of the new extension was the dining room just off the re-modeled kitchen on the ground floor. It has generous south-facing glazing and and a large dining table in the center. In the interior design the master bedroom is located below the dining room overlooking the sunken garden. Despite the use of wood cladding, the extension has a sense of lightness and transparency due to the dimensions of the glass panels being pushed to their limits. The exterior finish is an olive green stained pine with an overhanging glazed volume clad in galvanized steel.”
