Street Side: 
Our primary intention is to compose a contemporary facade by taking elements from the “spirit of place”. For this, the simplicity of shapes and colors, the base of the buildings are taken from the typical suburban street surrounding. In addition, the proportions of windows and frame, the play with simple and double openings are reused with slightly more random game. The project aligns with the height of its neighbor as well as it also access through a porch with a transparency the side yard .

Garden side: 
The sobriety that was required on street side is here replaced by a set of complexity to dramatize the garden. Indeed its trapezoidal shape, with its highly acute angle, and the high level of separating walls give the place a strange feeling that we want to sublimate, so we don’t suffer from it. We have therefore implemented a series of domestic scale elements to animate the place:

  • Along the hall, a first element is stretched to house cellars and all common areas of the building. Its roof welcomes the outdoor terrace and garden shed of the contiguous second floor apartment.
  • The facade is punctuated by a set of pleats that while widening or contracting free outdoor spaces for each apartment. This volume play allows identifying each flat while animating the facade and its garden. The natural larch cladding of the facade comes to raise the “garden spirit”.

  • A garden composed of native prairie (requiring a single annual mowing and minimal watering provided by the holding tank water for this purpose), a wooden trellis allows common rooms and separating walls to be coated with ivy, restoring a human scale to the wall of the garden.
