432-434 Saint Pierre


Charming building with innovative architectural elements for its time: a stone frame with floor-to-ceiling windows for maximum natural lighting. This is in fact one of the oldest examples of this type of building in Canada. The arched windows on the top floor are topped by brackets supporting a thick wood and metal cornice. The cozy ambiance or atmosphere office space was restored with style to preserve the stone walls as well as the exposed wood columns and beams.
