House in Chambord

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.

French text:

La cliente souhaitait transformer un duplex datant des années 1920 en se réappropriant le 2ième étage pour y aménager 3 chambres à coucher et un espace de bureau. La façade avant en pierre grise fut remise en état tandis que la façade côté cour a été entièrement remodelée toute en transparence.

Le concept du projet a été de brouiller les limites entre l’intérieur et l’extérieur. Ainsi une généreuse fenestration inonde la maison de lumière et donne le sentiment à ses occupants d’être en lien continuel avec le jardin. La chambre des maitres est conçue tel un volume en porte-à faux qui se projette à travers les parois vitrées pour aboutir en suspension au dessus de la terrasse. Les matériaux extérieurs utilisés sont le cèdre de l’ouest et des panneaux de fibrociment peints en noir et blanc.
