Gothic-style row home restoration & modernization
This unique heritage home was designed by J. Omer Marchand, the first Canadian architect to graduate from l'École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Although Gothic in style, the materials used meant it was considered modern for the time. To accommodate their family more comfortably, the owners wished to modernize the interior. All original woodwork was restored.
