Monaco Garden in Canada by RobitailleCurtis

Located in Westmount, Montreal, Quebec, Canada this incredibly beautiful “Monaco Garden” was designed by RobitailleCurtis in 2017. The client wished the garden would recall his Italian cultural heritage.

Located on a steep, narrow site, this garden was overgrown with cedar hedges, dark and lacked usable space. The client wished to create a garden that would recall his cultural heritage in Italy. Natural, warm toned materials, curvilinear forms and a sense of permanence through enduring materiality were all strong drivers for this design. Given the close adjacency to neighbors, privacy was also a crucial consideration. The new garden is centered around a curving stair leading to a central patio and belvedere wall. Walls and curved stair are made from locally sourced, carved stone. Forty-four trees were planted for canopy succession and privacy. A carefully detailed pergola adds a beautiful focal point and intimacy to garden. Aerial hedges of hornbeam and hemlock trees, in addition to the cedar fence create a friendly and beautiful perimeter.
