Microclimat has designed terraced house renovation, 1st Avenue Residence, facing a neighbourhood park in Rosemont, Montreal, Canada. The house, encompassing 362m² (3,897ft²), is owned by a young family with two children.
As you step foot through the door, your eye is drawn to the back of the home, where the kitchen and living spaces extend outside thanks to impressive windows that frame the backyard. A kitchen counter naturally flows onto the terrace, visually and concretely uniting the two spaces. Cantilever overhangs in white parging shelter the counter from the elements throughout the seasons and offer a signature look to the back of the building.
The fluid transition from one space to the next continues throughout the home with a double height open space. United by a central wooden stairway and glass railing, it invites even more natural light into the home. The white walls and ceilings, as well as the polished concrete floors brighten up the space, whereas the wood paneling on the stairway adds warmth to the minimalist design, and draws the eye up the stairs to the bedrooms.
