Enhancing a Split-Level
DESK architectes designed the complete interior renovation of this split-level in Vieux-Longueuil as an opportunity to enhance the architectural quality of a typical suburbs residence.

In context
Located on the edge of Vieux-Longueuil, this typical 80s split-level had remained virtually unchanged since its construction. This residence deserved a makeover to properly accommodate its new occupants; a couple of young Montrealers wishing to enjoy the qualities of an isolated suburban house while remaining close to the Montreal business center.

The mandate
The mandate was to design the complete interior renovation of the building. The kitchen, bathroom, and master bedroom had to be completely reshaped. It was necessary not only to replace all the interior finishes but also to create a significant new aesthetic by magnifying the intrinsic qualities of the building and by optimizing the functional relationship between rooms.
