The Lausanne house, a 1973 bungalow in Quebec City, received a graceful renovation from Hatem+D Architecture.
An entire floor was added to the house, and the garage was updated.
The exterior mixes pale gray wood on the vertical volume, and fiber cement and black brick on the horiztonal volume. The three trees in the front yard were maintained during the renovation process.
The kitchen features a wide Corian countertop and Bertoia stools. The polished ceramic flooring is from Céramique Décor in Québec.
The dining table in the open-plan space is custom, and the fireplace is from Napoleon.
The new upper floor holds three bedrooms and a balcony overlooking the structure's wooded surroundings. The house totals 1,850 square feet.
