Arbalete Residence is a old family home recently transformed into a spacious contemporary residence by the Montreal based multidisciplinary design agency, Appareil Architecture. The building was originally a small wooden house built in 1922 and has undergone several transformations and expansions over the years.
From the architect: New design and layout of a house located in the Laurentians, with the goal of creating a more cohesive whole that echoes both the environment and the client’s needs. Elements of the pre-existing house were preserved, such as the old wood beams, creating an interesting contrast with the new contemporary look of the space. A large extension now serves as a link between the house and the surrounding nature.
