Before and After: Revamped 1800s Home Gets Goth Look

New, 4 comments

Nope, that's not a movie villain's lair, though the facade is, admittedly, a bit foreboding. This 125-year-old two-story residence in Montreal got a goth revamp from local firm Architecture Open Form, with a newly painted black facade and an interior reorganization that now has flexible, open-plan interiors, conceived in collaboration with Christopher Bélanger Design.

Simple, natural materials on the interior—slate, stone, copper—create an open, airy interior that provides contrast with the dark, slightly foreboding facade. And new connections between indoor rooms and outdoor spaces provide easy access to a deck in the backyard.
