Outremont, Montreal, QC
Special care is needed to turn a house into a home. This building had been partially renovated before its purchase, but La Barre Construction and the architect Geneviève Bégin made it into a household perfectly suited to the wants and needs of its new occupants.
Major additions included a steam shower in the master bathroom and the conception of a highly practical mudroom for the secondary entrance. The backyard landscape was also beautifully redesigned. To top if off, the old cold chamber was converted into a stunning wine cellar, complete with a black lacquered ceiling for a mirrored effect.
Unfortunately, the renovations uncovered long-standing water damage. About 150 square feet of surface had been penetrated by mould, necessitating decontamination and renewal.
