MYST

The
new
standard
in the
canal
district

17 years ago, I was looking for a site to build my carpet factory.
I visited the Canal District, saw a great lot on the shore of the Canal
and up went the factory. Over time, looking out on the water, strolling
along the shaded shore path, it dawned on me: this would be an exceptional
place to live. A few minutes from downtown, right next door to the Atwater
Market, surrounded by trees and water...

So, this past August, the bulldozers came in and down went the factory.
My dream has now become my obsession - to make Myst the most
distinctive property in the Canal District.

Perfect conditions inspired a contemporary architecture in step with
the client’s passion for this project. My associate Antoine Chaloub
and I instantly imagined the concrete structure giving way to large window
expanses and distinctive volumes boldly framing the view. The nearby canal
has a number of architectural details, such as the sixth floor gangway
reminiscent of bridges spanning the shores. We envisioned
a suspended residential building, as if weightlessly floating through
the air. A building of our times.

Think of soothing natural light. Large open rooms, no boundaries,
European style. This is a relaxed way of life, just like an endless
vacation in a chic seaside villa. Yet, Myst is full of character.
White all over, chrome accents, sophisticated textures set off against
natural stones. A striking, stunning style.
