Located in the Old Montreal, with a spectacular view from the terrace on the Saint Lawrence River and the port, the loft we’ll talk about today is in a building that used to be a fire station.

It hasn’t been renovated since the 70’s, and when the new owner bought it, Manon Bélanger – Canadian interior designer – was called to redesign the entire place.

The designer combined the old building’s unique past and industrial charm with modern aesthetics and cosy décor. It resulted in a distinctly masculine space with a lot of textures ranging from exposed brick walls to stainless steel surfaces and warm wooden tones.

Quoting Bélanger, “the mandate was to leverage the richness of the architecture and materials while giving a masculine spirit to the place. The choice to replace the wooden staircase to the terrace by the steel spiral staircase is adding a touch of lightness to the place, in addition to the restoration of the wooden floor with a white finish.”

Interesting details are placed throughout to give the apartment personality. The artfully stacked log feature and collection of animal antlers speak to the tastes of a rugged backwoodsman.

On the other hand, the modern art in the living room, the minimalist kitchen and bathroom, and the book-laden shelves of the small reading nook are the calling cards of an urbane city gent. This space is truly all about balance.
