Montreal designer Louis Beliveau of La Firme studio has overhauled a decrepit barn in Quebec by turning its hollow core into a holiday home for two city dwellers.

蒙特利爾設計公司La Firme工作室的路易斯·貝利維歐(Louis Beliveau)已將魁北克一間破舊的穀倉改造成可容納兩個城市居民的度假屋。

La Firme’s Louis Beliveau worked with architect Michel Lemieux on the project, which involved disassembling an old shed and moving it to a new location on a farmhouse property in Mansonville, Quebec.

The old hemlock structure was then reassembled to its existing layout.

La Firme的Louis Beliveau與建築師Michel Lemieux合作完成了該項目,該項目涉及拆卸舊棚子並將其移至魁北克曼森維爾的一處農舍物業中的新位置。


“Because the foundations had to be reworked, every salvageable piece of the original hemlock construction was numbered and carefully stored,” said La Firme.

Beliveau and Lemieux then updated the barn with local hemlock spruce cladding outside and in, along with several windows and a new metal roof.

La Firme表示:“由於必須對基礎進行重新加工,因此對原始鐵杉結構的每一個可救助件都進行了編號並仔細存放。”


“The goal was to preserve its rustic character without compromising modern comfort,” said La Firme.”The redesigned space separations followed the existing wooden structure.”

“We avoided vertical elements in order to preserve the eye-line to the view.”



White, light-filled spaces feature inside with white oak floors, white-washed wood walls and exposed wood beams and pillars.


The home is nestled into a hillside and accessed from a footbridge, leading into the main part of the home on the middle floor. A basement and a first floor complete the three-storey property

房屋坐落在山坡上,可通過人行天橋進入,通向房屋中層的主要部分。 地下室和一層完成了三層樓的建築

The entry enclosed in glass ad accesses a double-height dining room with a 35-foot (10.6-metre) glass wall. Wishbone Chairs by Hans Wegner in black surround the table.

“The large windows give onto a spectacular view of the Sutton Mountains and a pristine agricultural landscape,” said La Firme.

On one side of the dining area is a kitchen with pale green cabinets and white counters. Louis Poulsen pendants define the space, while five Ikea Nilsolle bar stools are painted in Farrow & Ball’s Hague Blue.

用餐區的一側是帶淺綠色櫥櫃和白色櫃檯的廚房。 Louis Poulsen吊墜定義了空間,而五把宜家Nilsolle宜家酒吧凳則塗上了Farrow&Ball的海牙藍。

A living room is located opposite side and has two grey couches, a light grey coffee table and a dark feature wall that accommodates a fireplace.


Rounding out the main floor are a television room, a space with a pool table and a power room.

A steel staircase with powder-coated white steps leads up to four bedrooms and three bathrooms that are arranged in a U-shape. This leaves an opening with views down to the dining table below.


帶有粉末塗層白色台階的鋼製樓梯通向U型佈置的四間臥室和三間浴室。 這樣就可以欣賞到下面餐桌的景象。

The Barn is a 4,500-square-foot (418-square-metre) home and is complete with a utility and mechanical room, mudroom and garage in its basement.

The property includes a patio, outdoor swimming pool and garden, with the Sutton Mountains in the distance.



This year for Dezeen’s 2019 Awards, La Firme’s apartment renovation McGill 38 in Montreal was among the interiors projects longlisted.

Other houses in Quebec include Hatley House by Pelletier de Fontenay, a black chalet by Naturehumaine and a brick residence by Atelier Barda.
