CONDO (des Pins street)

With this huge project, we found ourselves in a large apartment in the city center, located in a building and a very popular area on Avenue Des Pins, Peel corner, right on the mountain. The owners wanted a condo reclaim abandoned last year. Everything had to be rebuilt, places urgently needed care.

Customers were able to imagine a chic and stylish space despite the plaster ceilings and the old bathroom with folkloric colors 60s Beyond the kitchen worthy of a museum the new owners recognized the potential of the environment.

The challenges are as much as logistics constraints related to the building and its location. Parking problems, difficulty climbing materials and other issues were added to structural puzzles. For example, poorly lit, the bathrooms were not welcoming nor comfortable. Given the concrete structure of the building, no drain could not be relocated. The floor also undulated concrete lot and was not level.

Since no drain is served the future location of the bath, the main innovation has been to place it on a small base and a preferred coating same for all floors. A large ceramic shower was custom made. The ceramic wall chosen for its glossy effect, light reflects and contributes to the impression of openness. In addition, fittings, furnishings and accessories were carefully selected: a classic look that fits very well with the rest of the premises. The few plots come mosaics give a touch of richness. In the kitchen, all the tile work was redone. The floor was leveled and rebuilt in full.


The main element of this remodeling has been to solve all the problems of this apartment: air conditioning had to be repaired, all the moldings were replaced summers, one of the rooms was converted into a studio and all its walls and surfaces were covered upholstery or carpet. An engineered wood floor was installed and all room doors have summers replaced by glass doors.

The metal door frames summers have kept and we machined the doors so that they fit together well within existing frameworks. Recessed lights using LED technology was also built into the ceiling of the bathrooms to allow our customers to enjoy a better quality of lighting.

"The renovation team Deschênes succeeded despite the reduced space, the height of the building, the parking unavailability or inability to mount large materials to produce complete and entire projects, to give a soul and style apartment forgotten in time."

The result

Beyond kindly receive the guests, all these innovations stem from a desire to assert its personality by the owners. The most inspiring kitchens are those that reflect the identity of those. Whether in the use of single tiles or through a choice of high strength materials, everything is in the personal touch more than ever.
