Laurier House

Urban Zen

The spectacular, 25th floor view of the Gatineau Hills was wasted in the original multi-walled design of this condominium apartment. Taking down some walls created a 20-foot by 20-foot combined eating and living area including an ultra modern kitchen with a wall of chic pantry storage. Office equipment is hidden in the cupboards to enhance the clean look of the room and maple flooring installed with noise-absorbing underlay completes the open and comfortable atmosphere.

Now with emphasis on the view that can be enjoyed from every corner of the room, the space is given a vibrancy that enhances the eye-catching design.

“My newly purchased home, in a 1970s era building, was in great need of renewal. Paul did a superb job of creating my new kitchen, opening the space by removing walls and giving it a separate identity by dropping the ceiling. He also made innovative suggestions regarding materials that could be used in lieu of panelling on the front of refrigerator.

I was able to place my complete confidence in Paul`s professionalism, work ethic and timely completion of work. Paul made a point of always explaining my options – whether in the area of colour or materials – taking design, cost and time factors into account. He was also very aware of how potentially stressful home renovation can be …” Daphne
