More Information

This building originally featured a flat roofline with a screened entryway; subsequent renovations have added a small mansardic roof form as a sort of cornice on the front facade, as well as a peaked roof and other additions. Remaining from the initial design is the wall of weeping mortar brick and triangular windows behind. The original interior design work was by Gaboury collaborator Bernard Aubry.
