Minimalist dwelling in Montreal designed with concrete and wood

Architecture-Modern-Home-Henri Cleinge-01-1 Kindesign

Maison Beaumont is an amazing modern home comprised of concrete and wood, designed by the architect Henri Cleinge, located in a suburb of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The dwelling resides in an area where residential houses and small industrial buildings are mixed. Therefore the design of the home (which is the personal home of the architect) was focused on a simple aesthetic, an industrial air with concrete as the main building material. Two cubic volumes forms the concrete and wood house, which is comprised of 3,229 square feet (300 square meters), spread out over two levels. One of the volumes hosts the living room, an impressive double-height space where natural light pours in through large glass openings framed by Corten steel, as well as from skylights punched into the roof. The architect wanted to pay homage to the space, letting them speak for themselves, so the decor is minimal, simple and sober. A house comprised of concrete, both inside and out, finds its perfect partner in wood, with paneled cedar ceilings, furnishings, the maplewood staircase and kitchen cabinetry. A surprising and delicate boundary between crudeness and warmth.
