Preserving Old Montréal

At the intersection of Place Royale and Place d’Youville stands a historic structure that harkens back to the foundation of Montréal.  

The Mariners’ House was designed as a living and gathering place for the sailors who founded and grew the city. So, when the building fell into the ownership of the local Pointe-à-Callière museum, it was clear that a legacy needed to be preserved.  

Dan S. Hanganu and Provencher Roy + Associés consortium architects designed a structure that would preserve large portions of the existing structure whilst still modernizing it. Nawkaw Stain Technicians transformed both original and infill masonry into a brilliant gray finish which realized the vision of the architectural consortium and revitalized Old Montréal.

Our work with the Mariners’ House in Old Montréal involved precise color work not only to match the specifications of the architectural consortium, but also to work in reverence to the surrounding environment and lauded history of the job site. Our recent article in Dezeen gives you the full story of how we brought this building to life.
