Designer Gaëtan Havart has turned this  misused space into a vibrant kitchen. This first floor apartment was first built in 1885 and situated within the McGill neighbourhood of Montreal. The clients, a web developer and a  jewellery designer along with a son, wished for a more open space for eating and entertainment. The kitchen island contains parts from IKEA, refitted with custom doors along with a dishwasher.
