In a context where conceiving an office building too often means an obsessive pursuit of space optimization, the Campus 54 project is surprisingly rich in program and intentions. Typical office buildings, especially when located on the outskirts of the city, largely fail to generate life and activity outside of the office space per se. This obsession with efficiency leaves a large part of the office life unaddressed. The ambition of this project was to create a setting where spaces for leisure, stimulation, relaxation, health, nature and ad hoc encounters would seamlessly blend into the workspaces.

The Majestic Theatre was built in 1921 as a substantial brick building with a strongly worked, rendered façade to New Canterbury Road. It is suspected that the original building housed vaudeville productions, as there was modest stage area, and very small back of house.
The quality of the architectural fabric, and its strong urban presence saw the building retained and transformed for new uses when the theatre ceased operation. This led to a series of modifications and new uses over time.

The project’s design and planning focus on a thorough understanding of the local context. The building responds to existing scales. Its location and architecture denote the space´s public nature and inject new life into the site. By taking surrounding public spaces into consideration when designing the project, we reinforced the notion that this building is a public facility, a landmark within the surrounding disorder. So as to allude to a mind’s eye view we asked ourselves how we could draw attention to the building without stirring up too much controversy.

Since the recent opening of Japanese bistro Kinoya on Saint-Denis Street, the Irasshaïmase salutes have not stopped in this izakaya, the Japanese answer to the tapas bar. Modern yet imbued with tradition, this little gem of Japanese cuisine deserved for its jewel case nothing but an unusually inventive design. Created by the talented designer Jean de Lessard, who had carte blanche for this project, the volumes and shapes of great simplicity are making this space shine with a total casual chic.

A house as a sreet
A small house built on a narrow site. The width of the site is 5m, just the same as the street in front, and the house is even narrowed down into 3mwidth tubular space.This tubular space separates into two branches,one protrudes straight in the air to create a void underneath for the parking,one slightly shifts down to form an entrance space.This 22m long entrance space is not a closed corridor but almost like a open street, both sides are connected to the environments, even has a branch and a forked point, which leads you to the other side of the site, a little garden and a green road with a stream. This “street” introduces the sense of urban scales into this small house.

“It is not a building but a district” District is the way a human being lives in urban context.
We choose of the shelf low cost industrial materials to create these urban spaces. There is no hierarchy within these surfaces that makes it urban and authentic. Therefore each surface transmits a feeling of purity and coexistence in relation with its surrounding. The statics of Melon District are defined by the authenticity of the materials. There is no decoration.
