The Lantern is an extension project for a split-level house located in Saint-Lambert. An additional bedroom was required to comfortably accommodate the newly expanded family. The complete renovation of the garden level allowed for the addition of this extra bedroom while creating a laundry room and storage space. The addition at the back of the house enlarged the existing family room and improved its connection to the yard by adding abundant windows. The staircase between the different levels was opened to improve the connection between the different levels of the house. On the first floor, the primary bedroom was moved into the extension to offer the parents a place overlooking the courtyard filled with natural light. During the demolition, the existing brick of the house was salvaged and reinstalled on the addition to enhance the integration of the addition to the existing house.
