Gardenville is a project designed by ActDesign. On the doorstep of an old, upper-class neighbourhood, this elegant New England-style home instantly won the hearts of its future owners. They wanted a contemporary addition designed and built among the mature trees with a stunning view of the large garden. The result was a major interior renovation of the original heritage building and a modern cubic addition to house the kitchen, bedroom and ensuite bathroom, in contrast with the original ’50s style.
De la commune is a project designed by ActDesign. A complex and large-scale project if there ever was one—the renovation involved combining two adjoining condominium units. We were to keep the common areas as well as the mechanical and plumbing elements that were drilled into the slab, while planning the final result of the large unit, encompassing more than 2,000 square feet.
