Long Description:
Le Ladies Protestant Home est un des premiers immeubles de la ville à utiliser avec autant d'éloquence le style des palais et des villas de la Renaissance italienne. La toiture presque plate mais largement débordante, les entablements et les triplets d'arcature en plein cintre, fenêtres arquées abondent, de même que les autres formes amples et classiques. Un lanternon domine la toiture, apportant un air aristocratique qui fait oublier la destination d'hospice charitable. La qualité d'exécution de l'immeuble, son propriétaire unique pendant 130 ans et son entretien régulier ont été les facteurs qui ont garanti la pérennité de ce bâtiment exceptionnel. L'immeuble loge aujourd'hui des appartements en copropriété.

Translated from the above text:

The Ladies Protestant Home is one of the first buildings in the city to use the style of palaces and villas of the Italian Renaissance with such eloquence. The almost flat but largely overhanging roof, the entablatures and the triplets of semicircular arch, arched windows abound, as well as the other ample and classic forms. A lantern dominates the roof, bringing an aristocratic air that makes you forget the destination of charitable hospice. The quality of execution of the building, its sole owner for 130 years and its regular maintenance were the factors that guaranteed the sustainability of this exceptional building. The building now houses condominium apartments.
