Nature in the city

The environment of this former stationmaster house has radically changed in recent decades. On the west side, the railways have given way to a big park with trees that have since matured. On the east side, there is now a suspended highway that cuts through the city. The renovation and expansion of this property fits into this transformed context.

Maison de Chateaubriand

In the front, on the east side, the brick facade is simple and graphic. It maintains the original openings. Rather opaque, it protects the privacy of the occupants. The insertion of some wooden slats is an indication of this property’s transformation.

The rear facade faces west and the park. The wood siding prevails and is in harmony with the natural surroundings. The new expansion volume includes the dining room and the deck. The railing is an extension of the wood siding.

Maison de Chateaubriand

The new windows shed lots of natural light and allow occupants to take advantage of the park’s vegetation and mature trees. Visible from the entrance, this urban nature is an integral part of the property’s busiest common spaces.

Maison de Chateaubriand

Only a short distance away from the highway, this renovated property will allow its occupants to live at the heart of nature and take advantage of its variations throughout the year.
