Maison Wilson

Maison Wilson in Montreal’s Notre-Dame-de-Grâce neighbourhood is signature la SHED architecture, a design-build firm known for deftly updating legacy housing stock by adding contemporary gestures while preserving homes’ heritage elements for maximum authenticity. In this latest coup, a two-storey addition at the rear of a home exemplifies the firm’s backyard-to-front-curb approach and contains a new kitchen, a master bedroom and additional square footage in the basement. In the 1916 structure, the architects enlarged the openings between main-floor spaces, uncased an antique wooden stairway (and featured it in the most spectacular fashion) and restored the formal dining room’s large double doors and extensive panelling to mint condition.
