Designer Felix Guyon shares a penthouse in a 25-storey building on Nuns’ Island in Montreal, with a stunning view of the Saint Lawrence River. See how he created a modern space for homeowner Mélanie Bourdeau and her family using clean lines and industrial elements.

The main living area is open concept so a cohesive design plan was essential. Sticking to a contemporary aesthetic, Felix used steel and walnut throughout the home. In the living room, an expansive marble wall with a built-in fireplace brings brightness and warmth. Sleek cabinets and a hidden storage pantry in the kitchen make it easy to keep the space tidy. In the media room, an integrated TV unit and built-in desk offers a minimalist look. A similar style is carried into the teen bedrooms, but with a twist that reflects their personalities. The all-white master bedroom offers a more serene feel, featuring a kitchenette that makes it easy to entertain guests on the attached terrace.
