Mr. Charles Daudelin artist - sculptor 1920 - 2001
First subdivision of Kirkland acquired since 1948 even before the existence of Kirkland in 1961. Since became a huge lot superbly landscaped by George Daudelin
landscape architect (Botanical Garden of Montreal, School of Horticulture of Versailles in France, and the employment of the Government of Quebec for the design of large public parks).
Over a period of 30 years, several buildings and expansions have sprung up on this property.
The architectural firm Rother, Bland, Trudeau was commissioned to develop plans for the first house built in 1950 and design was entrusted to Charles Elliot Trudeau.
As the Daudelin family was getting bigger, an addition was needed. The same firm was chosen to design two new rooms at the home in 1954. Subsequent constructions included to this addition.
The place of the house dedicated to the workshop, becoming more and more cramped, it was decided to build a new one at the back of the residence. This time, the architect Jean-Louis Lalonde was chosen to design the project in 1959. This is the only building that has not been converted over the years. Jean-Louis Lalonde had previously worked with Le Corbusier for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris.
Major expansion work was again entrusted to the architect Gordon Edwards. New kitchen, remodeled living room replacing the original workshop and alcove were created while respecting Trudeau's original concept.
Property with a beautiful balance of its proportions, one (ground floor) with mezzanine space, and large open studio space with heights under maximum ceilings +21 feet or 6.4 meters.
In the heart of Kirkland, this property is very inspiring and obviously different from the way Ste-Marie will transport you in a very privileged and resolutely secret environment ...
