Rising on a spacious piece of land on Montreal’s south shore, this 1920’s house was modernly adorned with an extension. Providing the family with more space and having this additional space organized into two  intertwining volumes, the home imagined by NatureHumaine surprises with stunning details. Known as the Dulwich Residence, it appears like a balanced mixture of textures and materials.

“A brick volume makes up the base and becomes the support for a steel clad volume that projects out into the backyard. The ‘sleeping basket’ is found at this projection where a large window frames the foliage. This becomes a space to relax and gaze out towards the garden as well as an area for the children to play while maintaining contact with the kitchen and dining spaces below.”

According to the architects, their clients wanted “a contemporary extension that would harmonize with their existing house and highlight and expose the structural brick. The existing house and the extension were separated by a glazed volume where the vertical circulation of the house is located. The existing house was re-organized to better suit the needs of the clients, where the entry and living room make up the ground floor and the children’s quarters on the second floor.” Photos by Adrien Williams show how the house spreading over 2845 square feet was re-organized to fit requirements and give off a relaxing, welcoming vibe. “Three double height spaces link the communal areas of the ground floor with the more private spaces of the second floor while maintaining a warm atmosphere in the house.”

The creative studio NatureHumaine worked on several stunning projects. We can mention this neat minimalist home in bright green and yellow and the black and white Connaught Residence in Montréal, as opposing projects. But in order to get a closer look into their astounding modern home design portfolio, you should also check out the layers and colours defining the Stacked House in Montreal, Canada and the 1920?s duplex in Montréal which underwent an unbelievable transformation under the attentive supervision of NatureHumaine.

The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
