Montreal-based practice NatureHumaine have designed an expansion to an old duplex dating from the 1940s. The three-storey expansion provides modern living space for a couple and their two young children. From the architects, “Passion of contemporary architecture, a couple with two young children want to build a three-story addition to their duplex dating from 40. Their main desire is to develop a dining room that will become the heart of the home and the place of family exchange. This piece of glass largely ground floor facing south and is adjacent to the new kitchen.
The addition includes a ground level garden master bedroom overlooking an English court. A sense of lightness and transparency is provided to the entire structure even wood construction. The dimensions of the glass panels are increasingly pushed to their limit. The siding is pine green olive complexion and bezel capped glass of galvanized steel plate.”
