For the third year in a row, Montreal designers opened their doors to let us discover their latest creations and chatted with them. On this sunny Sunday afternoon, my husband and I went to see a few architecture and interior design projects in the heart of Montreal. I will show you my three “coups de coeur”, meaning favorite, of what I have seen in a series of posts.
The third place goes to the superb Loft perched on top of Encadrex, an artisan framing studio with a gallery. The architects at Smith Vigeant imagined this new construction done on the roof of an existing building. Glass walls, an impressive view and a daring design characterized the interior design. The terrace on the roof is awesome.
The minimal kitchen looks great but lack some practicalities to be a cook kitchen. Wrought iron is used in unusual places: as a wall covering in the living room and as a kitchen hood box. The glass shower with a skylight sits in the middle of the room. The interior design of this modern loft would fit the lifestyle of a bachelor and a couple without children.
Stay tuned for two more posts to see the runner up and the top place of my Sunday visit.
