RENOVATION OF A BASEMENT
This complete renovation of the basement in this three-storey house in Westmount asked us to take over all the foundations and waterproofing of the building, to finally create a new pleasant and habitable relaxation space, integrating storage space.
We used raw materials, leaving the wooden structure and foundations exposed to obtain a more authentic style. The rubble foundation stones were cleaned, scraped and then sandblasted. This sandblasting technique allows the stone to be thoroughly cleaned without damaging it.
The water-heated floor brings comfort and radiant heat. The concrete slab is waxed to create a mineral effect. A great deal of detail work has been done in the cutting of the ceramic tiles for the bathroom in particular, as well as the wooden benches in one rough piece.
