Residential renovation

Notre-Dame-de-Grâce - Montreal


1 200 sq ft

The Northcliffe residence is a design project located in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, involving the renovation of the existing kitchen and bathroom.


To preserve the unique character of the residence, we opted for a layout that respects the location of the walls and original openings.

The kitchen, once positioned against a blind wall, now opens up to the client's outdoor terrace. The addition of a window on the side facade allows natural light to enter the space.

An additional strip window allows light to gently illuminate the area, previously darkened by high-end lacquer materials in a color other than black, as well as the island and vanities in black-stained white oak.

This subtle light highlights the chosen materials for the cabinetry elements.


The contrast between different shades of whites and blacks creates a space with clear and distinct lines.


This understated palette gives the kitchen and bathroom a contemporary look, in harmony with the other rooms in the house.

When conceiving this project, we considered the client's tastes, who has a unique sensitivity towards Asian art as a conservator by profession.

Possessing a particular knowledge and appreciation for Asian art, we selected a tile reminiscent of the natural fiber of textiles from the Wabi Sabi movement.


This choice creates an enveloping ambiance, and its light hue gives the illusion of a larger space.
