Inspired by the "mid-century modern" style, the Garnier residence located in the trendy Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood in Montreal Qc is an atypical renovation where the beauty of the materials is at the service of singular spaces that redraw the boundaries between public and private.

Designed for a couple and their young children, the former triplex gives pride of place to reception areas. The large living room on the top floor receives maximum light, while the bedrooms, nestled on the first floor, live in the shadow of the double garage in the backyard. The renovation of the three levels also includes the basement which is partly occupied by an independent studio dedicated to the visiting family, or for rent.

The clients desired an inspiring and warm welcome when they returned home in the evening. For a better day-to-day getaway from the daily stresses and strains of life, the communal living spaces were treated like a restaurant bar lounge. To play with these codes, the architects created a wooden stairwell, powder room, and integrated kitchen furniture. These architectural modules define the spaces while contributing to the house's hushed and somewhat secret atmosphere.
