A great living space project located in Montreal, Canada completed its renovation by the naturehumaine Architect. The architect is ordered by the client to renovate an 800 square feet bungalow by adding a second floor to the previous construction. A problem which is faced the architect is the poor conditions of the house foundations which is quickly proved this order is impossible. Then the architect has a conclusion for the problem. He studies the possibility to build an extension into the backyard.
The two main constraints are to be found is the municipality forbid to construct higher than the existing roof membrane and the presence of roc 4-0 into the ground made the construction of a basement which is very costly. An unconventional solution is developed from those limitations by compressing the spaces on the numerous split-levels to yield the desired rooms, with a stunning double height dining room and a generous provision of the natural light.
The materials which are selected by the architect are deliberately left the raw and it is untouched to bluntly meet the existing structure of the house. The interior design of the house is achieves a simple air of authenticity, it is for all its acceptance of the roughness. The architect is yielded a unique project by playing in a subversive manner with the numerous cons traits. It is simple and modest, the St-Hubert residence is offering a nonetheless a rich spatial experience with a generous and luminous spaces.
In the kitchen area, a wooden floor is installed there. It is adding a natural and calmness atmosphere inside the kitchen. The dining table also made from the wood. The combination between both of them is fused one each other. A natural atmosphere is so felt inside the kitchen area. Two thumb for the architect.
