Unity in Design Results in an Incredible Space

This concrete house, built in the 1990s, needed an update. The closed in kitchen created a wall between the living spaces, and the decor, in saturated primary colors, produced a rather cold atmosphere. In 2017, the owners decided to refresh the property with a more contemporary and allencompassing look. This was the challenge taken up by the Desjardins Bherer team.

The partitions around the kitchen came down to create a completely open living area that would let in as much light as possible. Low storage cabinets were used to open and free up the space. The circulation was redefined, and the structure streamlined.

The kitchen became the core of the property. White cabinets with a counter of the same color, placed in front of a large, expanded window, accommodate all the accessories. Two cabinet units of grey stained oak face the kitchen, discretely demarcating the space.

Desjardins Bherer used uniformity to create a harmonious decor. Identical carpets in the living room and the sitting room create attractive visual unity, as do the linen sofas and the reading lamps in the two spaces. The fireplace, open to both rooms and clad in concrete, also brings cohesion to the areas.
