The Prince Philip Residence in Montreal, Canada, is a mid-century building recently expanded by Thellend Fortin Architectes. Installed behind and below the original single-story structure, the extension gives the home a second floor overlooking the limestone-lined swimming pool. Clad in anthracite-coloured concrete panels, the rectangular volume at the ground floor echoes the light hue of the pool and deck. The upper-level addition, however, is done in the dark brown of the rest of home’s facade. These color choices help to blend the addition without forcing the contemporary elements to be identical to their older counterparts. The updated parts of the home bring in natural lighting through their large rear windows, further connecting the interior to the outdoors.
