A Montreal House That Makes You Feel Like You Are Living Outside But Inside

Photo cred - Dezeen Magazine

Casually nestled between the traditional working-class residences in the south-west neighbourhood of the city, The Holy Cross House from first glance looks like nothing more than an aluminum box. But behind its silver facade, is a beautifully clean and streamlined four-storey living space owned by a young Montreal couple.

Organized around a central three-tiered courtyard, the architects at TBA designed the Holy Cross House to funnel daylight to every storey by carving out a series of spaces with multi-leveled terraces and incorporating full-height windows to illuminate each room, while fostering a sense of movement throughout the house.

The 3-bedroom Holy Cross House comprises a smaller, square basement, a rectangular ground-floor, a kitchen and dinning area on the L-shaped first floor, and a work studio on the upper-level. Almost every room faces into the central space and have direct access to a terrace.

A focus on a contemporary and minimalist aesthetic runs through the main living areas to highlight the young couple's collection of art and design objects with absolutely stunning results.
