Cottage de Brebeuf-Atelier BOOM TOWN-01-1 Kindesign

Cottage de Brebeuf is the conversion of a duplex cottage by Atelier BOOM TOWN into a rustic chic home comprised of steel, wood and concrete, located in Brebeuf, Quebec, Canada. The transformation was based on replacing the original structural axes. On the ground floor, bearing walls bordering the existing central circulation are replaced by a structure of beams and raw steel columns, allowing the creation of an open area for living areas, encompassing the kitchen, living and dining room.

Small openings in the back yard are enlarged to maximum capacity, allowing at the same time easy and smooth access to outdoor space. Wood joists above the ground floor are exposed, increasing the height effect under the ceiling. Technical block housing a small toilet room and various storage is covered with concrete panels.

The wood recovered during the demolition is reused to cover the kitchen island to build shelves and sliding doors. The staircase is at the heart of the ground floor, becoming a characterizing element and allowing arrival at the center of the floor, under a new skylight where bedrooms are easily accessible without suffering a loss of space for traffic.
