Chambord Residence by naturehumaine

In order to create this modern residence that is located in Montréal, Canada, naturehumaine converted a 1920’s duplex into a single family home.

The 2013 renovation completely transformed the rear of the house and added three additional bedrooms as well as a home office.

Chambord Residence by naturehumaine:

“The client wanted to utilize the second storey of her 1920s duplex by converting her former rental unit into 3 bedrooms and an office space. While the grey-stone front facade only required minor restorations, the back of the house was transformed completely. An emphasis on transparency creates constant visual and physical connections with the backyard.

A cedar clad volume, containing the master bedroom, punches through the glass exterior wall and cantelivers over the backyard, sheltering the patio below. The wood cladding continues through to the inside, blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior.”
