Centre de dia i casal de gent gran de Blancafort in Spain by GUILLEM CARRERA arquitecte

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

Article source: GUILLEM CARRERA arquitecte

Day center and home for the elderly of Blancafort.

A social building necessary for the elderly of the village of Blancafort and its neighboring municipalities.

The initial observation of the plot and its environment led to consider that the future building did not have to solve only a program and a requirement of an isolated building, but it also had to help consolidate the nearest urban fabric, creating an entrance to the village with its own personality and public character.

Le François-René in Montréal, Canada by Architecture Open Form

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Article source: v2com

The François-René project, on Châteaubriand Avenue in Montreal’s Rosemont-Petite-Patrie neighbourhood, boasts six exceptional, thoroughly contemporary residences. Montreal is in the midst of a condo boom, and developer Maître Carré has taken on the mission of bringing a creative and sustainable breath of fresh air to the industry.

The project is set amidst a traditional streetscape of attached duplexes and triplexes. Standard zoning for the area would have allowed for two new triplexes. Maître Carré and Architecture Open Form broke away from that constraint and proposed a bold new solution. The result: three two-story townhouses with basements, topped by three condominiums each with a mezzanine and rooftop patio.
