Renovations are notoriously stressful. Particularly when you have a limited budget.
In this case, the Montreal design company "La Firme" set out to complete a budget-conscious renovation for a family of four located in Mont-Royal in Montreal, Quebec.
The project in question is called 123 Klan and was designed by Stephane Asselin.
One could say they passed with "flying colours".
The clever use of Oriented Strand Board (OSB), otherwise known as Aspenite, is prominent in the space.
The OSB panels, with their interesting pattern, cover the existing walls and electrical upgrades while circumventing the need to demolish the existing structure.
La Firme's designs typically focus on large blocks of contrasting colours, patterns and textures. The painted brick walls and the OSB panels provide a warm pattern and a cool texture respectively, while the large areas of bright colours take centre stage. The built-in cabinetry offer simple elegant profiles to showcase the space, which is playfully modern with an economical flair.
