_naturehumaine’s Olivier Nelson Residence

The duplex is the classic type of home in Montréal: a building containing two separate residential units one above the other. As a household’s economic conditions improve, or family size increases, it is normal to expand by joining the two units in a single-family home. Architectural practice _naturehumaine is experienced in projects of this kind, of which the Olivier Nelson Residence is a prime example. The stylistic key to the Olivier Nelson Residence, and to _naturehumaine as a whole, is a blend of cleanliness and geometry, eclectic use of materials and minimalist furnishings.
