Montreal interior designers Gestion René Desjardins have completed the Maison du Boisé project. Completed in 2011, the luxury interior design property can be found in Canada.
According to the architects: “Once the clients had picked a wooded site, the brief was to create a contemporary Canadian house that would specifically address the children’s needs. From there, the mother was interested in colour and the father wanted a design that would last ‘indefinitely’. As for the style, they agreed it would be modern but ‘not minimalist’.
“Highly refined, they are the antithesis of popular notions of a family home, excessively ‘cosy’, overburdened with colours and objects. Then one begins to perceive the sensitivity of the approach taken. What does a child need to feel at home? Freedom of movement, achieved through ample spaces, fluid circulation for joyful fun of all kinds, and the removal of barriers between public areas and family spaces.
“Despite the minimally furnished rooms, a monochromatic bias and the Sucupira floors throughout the house, the decor comes across as anything but minimalist due to accents borrowed from classical architecture. Reinterpreted from a modern perspective, the coffered ceilings, theatrical openings in the passages and wide matt-white mouldings running along the base of the silk-grey walls combine to create a sense of elegance and harmony, but, surprisingly they bring comfort too.
“Throughout the contemporary property there are furtive splashes of colour that add an indispensable touch of dissonance, much like grace notes in an overly serious score. Paintings strike some major chords. ‘There is something naive about them that I thought the children could relate to,’ said Desjardins.”

As a traditional semi-detached residence, the house was originally comprised of a series of unrelated rooms and made no connection to its site or outdoor spaces. The new design sought to connect the house with its garden by recreating the rear living space as a large verandah.
By virtue of its planning and careful curation of its openings, the house maximises views, sun, daylight and cross...
The concept of an old warehouse converted into brewery. With different materials and furniture we have created a place where local interior wanted to get away from the typical concept of beer, projecting different environments. We always take inspiration from the location of our premises and this has been a good place for the election. When designing the brewery we have drawn in the main...
