The semi-detached Lansdowne House by Affleck de la Riva architects is situated on a street that's full of character, history and lots of changes in elevation. In response to this, the house puts a focus on asymmetry, merging its sleek and modern half with a more traditional piece of architecture. Although the exterior design is unusual, it is definitely a reflection of the surrounding neighborhood, using the same red brick and black slate as other houses in the immediate area.

On the inside of the Montreal house, the design is all modern, featuring a crisp white interior with shiny metal and glass finishes, as well as some wood detailing to create that sense of warm familiarity in a home.
