The spectacular, 25th floor view of the Gatineau Hills was wasted in the original multi-walled design of this condominium apartment. Taking down some walls created a 20-foot by 20-foot combined eating and living area including an ultra modern kitchen with a wall of chic pantry storage. Office equipment is hidden in the cupboards to enhance the clean look of the room and maple flooring installed with noise-absorbing underlay completes the open and comfortable atmosphere.
Now with emphasis on the view that can be enjoyed from every corner of the room, the space is given a vibrancy that enhances the eye-catching design.

Want to see the winner entries?
Fine Homebuilding editors are a finicky bunch, and opinionated too. So the task of narrowing down the nearly 150 entries from our “Before and After: What’s Old is New Again,” kitchen and bath contest to just five winners wasn’t easy.
After the field was narrowed down to a group of fifteen, the editors convened with coffee and notebooks into a conference room equipped with a projector (for easier viewing). After going back and forth, and sometimes cringing, a few entries kept rising above the others, and viola, we found our winners.
Thanks to all who entered, and congratulations to the winning participants who will be mailed a new, DeWalt 18V 1/2" XRP LiIon Hammerdrill/Drill/Driver kit.
