More Information

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