Rebirth of a colonial farm house
Les Ensembliers were commissioned to find the perfect farm for city dwellers. It was a long-time dream for clients. When Maxime and Richard entered the long white picket fence alley... they knew they found the gem.
The project included a total renovation and extension of the main 5000-square-foot house, and reconstruction of auxiliary buildings. The concept was of playing with contrast between a traditional shingled exterior and a streamline
clean contemporary interior. The windows were redesigned, beams were exposed, ceilings raised, and attic space reclaimed while introducing cutting edge elements such as fireplaces, built-ins and lighting.
It is a balancing act between preserving old and introducing new elements.
A tailored chef's kitchen located in the heart of the house represents the fusion of the old and the new
home's identity. Custom white oak cabinets with a mat linen hand finish throughout the whole kitchen.
"This farm is the perfect tension between old and new."
