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.
