The Black Castle: Property of the Visionary Claude Cormier

Jacques Bilodeau and Claude Cormier, in collaboration with the firm _naturehumaine, transformed a former 1950s industrial workshop in 2003, located at 1221 Des Carrières Street, achieving a remarkable metamorphosis. Constraints imposed by the concrete block walls and foundation made adding two additional floors impossible. To preserve Bilodeau’s architectural intervention, an ingenious solution was implemented, involving construction on top. This delicate operation successfully melded history and modernity, thus preserving the building’s original essence.

At the heart of this impressive structure lies the personal residence of the renowned artist Claude Cormier. Designed to reflect landscapes, the floor layout fluctuates with a hydraulic system, creating a living masterpiece. Every corner of this abode speaks to the designer’s creativity, with custom-made furniture and a meticulous selection of artworks to embellish the space. Additionally, the property features a garden protected by a concrete wall with a sliding steel door, capable of serving as parking. A service staircase leads to a vegetated roof topped with a canopy, as well as a wooden terrace offering breathtaking city views. Every element has been carefully considered, imparting a playful ambiance to this property where aesthetics and architectural ingenuity harmoniously merge.
