Inside A Montreal Home Designed To Withstand Life With Four Kids

The owners of this 6,000-square-foot house in Côte-Saint-Luc, QC wanted a home that better reflected their personal style. “My clients wanted a house that matched their young and vibrant personalities,” says designer Eugenia Triandos, co-founder of Hibou Design & Co. The house had a dated look, with formal spaces and a fussy aesthetic that didn’t suit the large family’s active lifestyle. The homeowners needed space for their boys to play and quiet nooks where the adults could retreat for some downtime.

The project began with the renovation of the kitchen — but after its success, the scope expanded into a complete renovation of the house (including a must-see staircase!). The designers first order of business was sourcing durable materials that would survive life with four kids, without compromising on their refined style. Next up was ensuring that every room of the house maximized its full potential. “We are happy to see that our clients are using every square foot of their home now!” says Eugenia.
