Henri Cleinge Updates a Historic 200-Year-Old Residence

— September 18, 2009 — Art & Design
Architect Henri Cleinge recently renovated the Montréal home of Stéphane Dion and Éloïse Corbeil. With a projected area of 279 sqm and a budget of $800,000 Henri Cleinge was able to morph the home located at 4417 Christophe-Colomb Street into a modern oasis.

The existing building, which dates back to the 1800s, was a small single-family home, or cottage, that had been converted into a duplex in the early 1970s. The old wood exterior even boasted a door on the second floor that lead dropped onto the front yard. The intention for the Henri Cleinge residential project was to create a very contemporary, yet contextual dwelling within the historic Plateau Mont-Royal area of Montréal.

Henri Cleinge employed as many sustainable techniques as possible while renovating the home. The existing fir structural components of the house walls were reused as interior cladding on the home’s walls. Concrete, hot-rolled steel, walnut, and slate were used to add warmth to the hard lined shell. The house consists of an open area living space facing the front garden, a dining space, and the kitchen on the main floor. Located behind the kitchen is the garage, which is accessed by the alley. Henri Cleinge made sure that the second floor included a play area for the couple’s children as well as two bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom suite, which opens to a terrace and faces the front garden, is located on the third floor.
