Phoenix house

Firm LocationMontreal, Canada
CompanyAPPAREIL Architecture

Following a fire, the owners wished to refurbish their 2600 sq ft house in Montreal. The project’s identity was inspired by the couple's mingling of European and Asian cultures. The home finds balance between a blend of influences, styles, and materials. The stainless-steel kitchen contributes to an industrial aesthetic that contrasts with the white and the residential wood surrounding it, bringing a balance between a cold and a warmer physicality to the space. Wood panelled screens of Japanese influence punctuate the sequences and create rich subspaces on the open ground floor.
