Local architect Jean-Maxime Labrecque focuses on the Tudor movement, contemporary contexts and a stylish mirrored staircase as main features of this home in Montreal.
Before the renovation, the space is identified as "dark and stifling." The initial construction of the dwelling is one that strongly references the Tudor House with subtle stylistic elements. This is a time period in the 16th century that marks the monarchy in England.
Jean-Maxime Labrecque preserves some elements but largely reinterprets the home from a more contemporary point of view. The mirrored staircase, for one, is definitely an eye-catching development. By way of its reflective properties, the feature definitely does its part of creating the illusion of a more spacious interior. Another innovative representation is the floating-style black ladder steps that are "cantilevered from the wall."
