Bright and modern single family house

naturehumaine project 2

Lajeunesse Residence, a single family home in Montreal, designed by Naturehumaine.

The house belongs to young couple, who wanted to do a complete renovation. The house was built by their grandfather and it is third generatiom of the same family. They wanted to combine the two existing apartments into a single family house on two levels. 

The whole house is modern and bright. Due to the noisy street at the front of the house, the main living spaces is placed at the back facing north creating the challenge of bringing direct sunlight into these spaces. A double height light-well topped with a skylight, aids in bringing light to the centre of the house.
