Hutchison Flat

In order to accommodate new owners, this Outremont flat needed a transformation. After several partial renovations throughout the years, the dwelling had a dark and busy 1990s feel.

The mandate was to create a new flexible space within a tight floor plan for the owners who work from home. The aim was to reconfigure the layout, brighten the space, and restore some of the original features.

SUWA created a centralized living space, which became a bridge between the sleeping quarters (located on the street side) and the home office (located on the garden side).

The central space (kitchen, dining room and living room) is structured by a long marble counter, which maximizes storage.

The folding steel door creates fluidity between the work area and the living areas. The architects took advantage of the lack of sunlight along the corridor to place storage and a laundry room opposing a powder room and bathroom in an en-suite sequence.

In the design process, SUWA worked closely with its clients to create a simple and warm environment. Together they came up with a curated selection of furniture and objects for their new home.

Special attention was paid to textures, motifs and finishes to achieve an overall composition that speaks of the age of the building while staying current and fresh. To do so, durable and classic materials were used and mixed with contemporary design and Victorian details.

The goal was to create a timeless space that will age gracefully.

About Atelier SUWA
Atelier SUWA is an architecture and design studio based in Montreal, Canada. SUWA is interested in enhancing and simplifying spaces. In their work the architects seek a balance between functionality and beauty, tradition and modernity. Their work is driven by the study and consideration of the existing site and building in order to achieve a certain economy of means. The design aesthetic is contemporary with a focus on materials, textures and techniques to achieve durable yet affordable designs. SUWA’s expertise is in renovation and transformation of residential and commercial buildings.
Each project brings a set of challenges and constraints which, when considered carefully, can enrich the design direction. In the design process SUWA works closely with its clients, builders and tradespeople and spends a lot of time on the construction site understanding the existing conditions and finding solutions to ensure the best result.

Marie-Eve L. Brodsky founded Atelier SUWA in 2015 in Montreal. The studio is an informal chapter of SUWA Tokyo, an architecture office led by Daisuke Sanada where Brodsky worked as an intern in 2013. Their shared design philosophy and deep-rooted friendship made the association natural. The two offices continue to work together on a project-by-project basis.
