Here’s an opportunity that doesn’t come a-knockin’ very often: An apartment in Mosh Safdie’s iconic Brutalist housing block Habitat ’67 is on the market in Montreal. The unit in question is a 1,248-square-foot, two-story penthouse loft formed by two prefabricated concrete modules that has been more or less completely renovated. (Check out a video of the housing complex here.)
Still, that’s nothing to scoff at, as the home’s bright and airy spaces are most likely an homage to the original interiors. On the main floor, an open-plan layout comprises a living area, a sleek kitchen, and a half bath, with large picture windows framing views of the St. Lawrence River and beyond. An open-tread staircase leads upstairs to the full-floor master suite, which includes a lounge, study, bathroom, and, of course, those generous windows.
Rich wide-plank wood flooring is found throughout the white-walled residence, while a Crestron audio, video, and lighting system, plus access to an expansive private terrace round out the property. Located at 2600 Pierre-Dupuy Avenue in Montreal, Canada, it’s offered at $710,000 CAD, or about $554,000 USD. Have a look.
