The project became completed in an vintage residence constructed at the foot of Mount Royal around the 1860s for Dr. McCulloch, after whom the street would later be named. The house changed into ultimately divided into two houses. The mission aimed to enlarge one of the divisions so the owners would have a brand new kitchen and an artwork studio.
the sharp shape of the extension is dictated through the land’s perspective setbacks. Its black materials echo the nuances of the works of art made by way of the owner, a graphite pencil artist, and have interaction with the gray stones of the century-vintage residence.
