Once a sugar refinery is now a bright and airy industrial-chic loft brimming with character, by design-build firm Les Ensembliers, located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The design team is formed by an architect and interior designer who were faced with the challenge of renovating this building. They wanted to preserve the visual power of the industrial character of the building, which included manufactured steel beams and pillars and the chimney plate.
The result is a culmination of wide, open spaces, soaring ceilings, rich finishes, decorative materials and sophisticated design gives this home a strong character. The design team created a central atrium which interlinks all three levels, flooding the spaces with natural light. They also wanted to connect open spaces in a fluid way to recreate the loft aesthetic they were seeking.
Each element and detail was created for the occasion, leading, intentionally to various focal points that emphasize the different areas and highlight the impressive volumes of old industrial areas.
Details of marble, glossy finishes, lacquered furnishings, brightly colored carpets, that are replicated in the rich and enveloping upholstery, fabric-covered walls … some stage, in short, a strong personality and very suggestive luxurious touches.
What We Love: The stunning living room that opens to the outside through large glazed openings and revolves around a fireplace with clean, industrial lines.
The library ladder is always a spectacular feature and the cozy window nook completes the aesthetic as the perfect spot to curl up and read a book! Readers, what do you think, what do you like or not like about this industrial-chic loft?
