ÎLE BLANCHE Residence by APPAREIL architecture

The young Montreal firm was offered a magnificent challenge when it was mandated to update the interior of this spacious Île des Soeurs home. The team’s meticulous work made it possible to refine, optimize and above all modernize the space, where light and modernity now reign. All under the Nordic and clean signature of APPAREIL architecture.

The firm’s team took up the challenge of giving the premises a second life and, above all, endowing them with a resolutely contemporary and luminous aesthetic. The owners also wished to revisit the space to adapt it to their needs, namely creating a space as friendly as it is soothing to host friends and raise a family.

The interior was redesigned from A to Z in order to offer a functional and cozy decor. Custom furniture, including an array of integrated furniture, creates a whole with the architecture and reinforces the space’s refined character. The demolition of walls that partitioned the space now allows for a greater burst of light to come through. Movement is much more fluid between the different spaces, whose styles and colors harmonize. The color white, highlighted on the walls, the lacquered surfaces of the furniture and the wooden floor’s treatment accentuate this luminous effect.

Contrast was also used to emphasize the contributions of key elements. The painted steel of the fireplace, the maple wood of the stairs and the immense vestibule door stand out even more through their juxtaposition with the immaculate white decor. Warm touches such as the addition of walnut wood in the kitchen and the bedroom create a convivial atmosphere. As do the presence of the new central kitchen island and the huge dining table that stands at the center of the home. Finally, particular attention was given to the finest finishing details, such as choosing to integrate full height doors and to display lamps custom-made by Montreal craftsmen.
