    Hi An 19th century building gets turned into residences in the 20th century, and renovated to bring it in to the 21st century.
    It's not easy mixing the old with the new, but this residence seamlessly crisscrosses time and borders with a decidedly historic and international feel. The original building owned by the Grey Nuns was built in the 1800's, turned into residences in the 1980's, and renovated bring it into the 21st century. Locally sourced materials like Quebec granite and maple were used by Quebec artisans to build a unique home rooted in history, and locally grounded.

    Local artists, many with international reputations, provide works.
