Montrealers Yves Bériault and Diane Decoste worked with the Montreal firm YH2 to update their 1,690-square-foot vacation home in Havre-Aux-Maisons, in Canada's Magdalen Islands, into a modern retreat. The renovation work revealed that the house, first built in 1915 as a one-room schoolhouse, had a spectacular arched open space hidden above a false ceiling. Photo by Matthew Monteith.
