They say there is a lid for every pot like there is a house for every person. These modern homes have been designed for these active families and individuals; two gymnasts, a rock climbing family, swimmers, basketball fans, and a skateboarder.
A pair of gymnast's rings dangle from the ceiling of this Montreal home, which has been renovated by local architects, Naturehumaine to create a new living space for the client's adult, athletic and gymnast children.
The architects removed the floor separating the two levels to create a double-height space within which two large plywood boxes are suspended giving the project the name - In Suspension. Gaps between the two boxes create three pockets of double-height space. An office and dining area occupy the tall spaces positioned against the facades at either end, while the centre is used for exercise. A pull-up bar is mounted on one wall and a set of gymnast's hoops are suspended from the ceiling.
