1929 Sir Mortimer B. Davis YHMA Building
The facade of this beautiful 1920’s building reveals little of this unique apartment’s rich space occupying the entire floor. The central hall leads to a vast double height entrance hall. This space represents a skilful transition between the opacity of the facade and the interior transparency of the complete rearrangement of the space. In fact, the facade embodies the desire for privacy expressed by the promoter, but this barrier is dematerialized as one steps into this apartment with semi-private elevator. The entire building was restored in 2010 and includes marble stairs, oak panelling, original mouldings, solarium and large private terrace with unparalleled views of Jeanne-Mance Park and the Mount Royal.
The layout created by the owners promotes both comfort and a strong relationship with the outdoor spaces. The open concept living room, dining room and kitchen face the sunny South. Three of the four bedrooms, the solarium and the terrace on the top level enjoy the same privileged orientation. All rooms boast double height ceilings (14 feet). The minimalist simplicity of the living and dining rooms with original 1929 walls is reinforced by the absence of window coverings. Very high windows provide an abundance of natural light to this space offering stunning white marble floors throughout. Nightfall brings a warm and intimate atmosphere to the modern decor. Traditional form and contemporary ideas blend seamlessly in these interior and exterior spaces.
