Closeup: Patrick's World of Wonder

Inside Man

We visited Patrick's loft in Montreal almost two years ago now. We thought this was a great time for a revisit to take a closeup look at a few of the fantastically inventive details from this man's home:

  • A vintage light box for viewing x-rays is now used to display travel photos printed onto clear sheets.
  • Patrick hired a painter to make his bathroom door look like it's for employee access only, in keeping with the old factory appeal of the building.
  • One of the most organized closets we've seen, Patrick's is painted dark inside and outfitted with wood organizers. The standard closet doors are spiced up with a riveted sheet metal cladding.
  • How could we forget this lighting over the dining table? It's made of old clarinet bodies wired and fitted with bulbs.
  • And who needs kitchen drawers when you have a vintage cash register fitted with a cutlery drawer?
