Contemporary interior design at Queen Residence


Montréal-based architectural practice, naturehumaine, has designed the Queen Residence project. The single-storey property is located in Saint-Lambert, Québec, Canada and boasts an extension and contemporary interior design.

According to the architect: “Devoted fans of architecture and design from the 50s and 60s the clients acquired this house built in 1958 with the intention of doing an extensive renovation as well as an addition. Since this “Butterfly House” has a strong personality, the objective in the intervention consisted in updating the house in respect of the original spirit.


“An extension was built on the east side of the house in continuum of the flying wing of the roof, thus keeping the elegance of the overall composition.

“As for the interior design, changes include modifications to the division of the spaces, as well as a new kitchen and bathrooms – keeping in mind the vintage aspect of the house. Some facades are rethought to allow a more generous input of natural light.”
