For a family living in Quebec City, their 1960s house had great bones, but it lacked the light and openness they craved in a home. They needed a space that was free-flowing, bright and that matched the energy of their two active young daughters. So the couple brought in architect Luc Bélanger and Geneviève Guimont of PARKA Architecture & Design and designer Guillaume Sasseville of Studio SSSVLL to help them bring the dated space back to life.
The team removed walls to open the space, installed larger windows to let in light, and used a pale palette to highlight the home's natural materials. The crisp interiors also serve as the perfect backdrop for the couple's vibrant art collection. In the end, the team was able to showcase the best parts of the home's original '60s style while updating it for modern family living.
