Montreal Loft Renovation is a minimalist home in Montreal, Canada designed by Future Simple Studio. The loft within the hundred year old historic building has been redesigned to accommodate family life while celebrating the building’s industrial origins.
The resulting design is based on a simple but elegant concept: a box in a box. Two adjacent glazed volumes function as bedrooms, which are carefully arranged in an open floor plan, with the kitchen, living area, dining, study and reading area flowing on the periphery.
The volumes are equipped with automated blinds to provide privacy when required and to playfully create a dreamlike atmosphere that develops with the changing light and shadow over the course of the day. Bespoke fixtures and furniture were made to measure by the studio to maximize space while integrating the original character of the building.
