Prairie-Style '60s Home in Quebec Gets Glossy Modern Update

All natural on the outside, all white on the inside

In renovating this '60s home in Laval, Quebec, Montreal-based practice Architecture Open Form and interior design firm FX Studio looked to original architectural details as a guide but ultimately created a decidedly contemporary abode. As Dwell details, the exterior donned a new cedar roof that "enhances the horizontality of the original building’s prairie-style layout," as well as an expanded—and also cedar-clad—terrace that harmonizes with the lush, woodsy surroundings.

All this belies a more striking interior transformation. With white beams, walls, ceilings, and cabinetry, the polished, minimalist result would surely find fans in those who voted "yea!" to our recent poll on "all-white interiors." Get the full story here.
