With just above 1,200 square feet, Espace St-Denis is a contemporary dream apartment situated on the ground floor of a residential creating in Montreal, Canada. A complete renovation by Anne Sophie Goneau, the new strategy imaginatively unfolds with 2 bedrooms, a total bath and open living-dining-kitchen room.

Upon entering the house from the street, a little vestibule with flat modular storage closets opens up to the linear kitchen and dining area featuring smooth pale grey epoxy flooring which flows all through. This area is breathtaking with it simplicity and contrasting colours and textures.

An emerald green velvet sofa is clean-lined nevertheless posh in the otherwise unadorned room of a white square coffee table and set of black-and-wood vintage side chairs.
The master bedroom sits along the kitchen corridor and is solely divided from that zone by a frameless glass wall. This layout component is ingenious, not only as an sudden and provocative characteristic, but since it permits the normal light–which is relatively limited due to the ground floor location–to bounce across surfaces and penetrate living locations.
A salvaged rustic wood wall turns into the corridor foremost to the 2nd bedroom and complete bath. A customized stainless steel basin and vanity is stacked upon the marble-wrapped tub, making a fascinating L-shaped installation. Plentiful lighting coupled with the shiny surfaces of steel and mirrors create a vivid area, even though the opposite side containing the stroll-in shower and toilet sits behind a dark smoky glass partition.
Espace St-Denis is a present day dream apartment home incorporating awesome, progressive style theories to ideal capture light and maximize space in a smaller footprint.
