When a kitchen becomes an architectural volume - Holy Cross House 

Montreal, Canada

Pure Cuisines + mobilier européens

Montreal, Canada, 2014-10-31 - 

Recently, a new single family home was built in Montreal’s veterans’ quarter. Designed for a young couple, the house features avant-garde architecture built around the concept of a deconstructed Monopoly house.

 

In keeping with a desire to achieve visual clarity, the kitchen is treated as an architectural object that forms an integral part of the overall space. Carl Lapointe and his team at Pure Cuisines designed an immense island – 3.75 by 1.3 metres – and a full-height wall unit to emphasize the space’s verticality. Made by the Italian manufacturer Cesar, the Yara kitchen’s complex and subtle details come together into a confidently minimalist whole.

 

The use of torify oak gives warmth, sophistication and a sense of movement to the monochrome space. This elegant natural material guided a number of decisions for the interior design of the rest of the house.

 

The choice of stainless steel for the work surface stemmed from the desire to achieve a high-tech industrial look reminiscent of a professional kitchen. The boldly modern, ultra-thin (4 mm) material is raised to produce a floating effect, creating a perfectly smooth, low-maintenance surface with no visible seams. The integrated sinks also provide benefits by helping to emphasize the volume’s unity and purity.

 

“Completely built-to-order and customizable, a kitchen is an architectural element that deserves special attention to both its details and its integration into its space,” said Carl Lapointe, president of Pure Cuisines.
