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. Photography by Félix Michaud.

This house designed by Bourgeois – Lechasseur architects, whose name refers to the brightest star in the Aquila constellation, is located in Cap-à-l’Aigle, in the region of Charlevoix. Altaïr means “The Flying Eagle.” What makes the house stand out is its “V” shape and long facades that are suspended over nature. While discrete from the street and closed to the north, it unfolds toward the river, as though to take flight. Photography by Adrien Williams

The architectural interiors project for the penthouse sp_penthouse designed by Studio Mk27 sought to attend to the demands of the program with the minimal division of space possible, shaping spatial continuity and amplitude for the apartment. Infinite circulations accentuate the fluidity between the spaces and configure functional pathways – of a clear understanding to the residents and their guests. Large corridors are also used here as galleries for the clients’ art collection and objects as well as pleasant architectural spaces, and not solely hallways. Photography by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen.
