Located in Westmount, a privileged suburb or Montreal, the Landsdowne House is a hidden design gem. The modernist home is designed by Richard de la Riva and Gavin Affleck of Affleck de la Riva Architects who brought their monumental concept to life in the heart of an inner city neighbourhood.

This semi-detached residence sits on the hillside and boasts an asymmetrical design that is inspired by its surrounding and uneven topography. Its neighbourhood's historic house styles include residences built after the Arts and Crafts and Neo-Gothic movement, periods that were both referenced when creating this contemporary abode.

In addition to its monumental bay windows, the two storey Landsdowne House features an open dining room and living area and a gorgeous garden that is a favourite of its inhabitants.
