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.

Bachelor Pad in Dublin Mountains, Ireland by Box Urban Design Architecture

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Article source: Box Urban Design Architecture

Existing Irish apartments frequently fail to meet the needs of their occupants and are viewed as an inadequate or undesirable housing option. The reconfiguration of existing apartments has the potential to contribute to and improve the existing urban high-density housing stock if exemplary precedents can be established.  This project embodies how a typical city-centre apartment can be reconfigured to meet the specific needs of the occupant and provide a desirable living-environment of architectural, sustainable and social quality.

SOCIAL HOUSING in Bergen, Norway by Rabatanalab (Rocco Salomone)

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

Article source: Rocco Salomone (Rabatanalab)

The project area is situated in a unique area of Bergen in Norway. Located just outside the historic city centre on the south side of Store Lungegårdsvannet near the Møllendal River, the site has a long history as an industrial area, including milling back to the Middle Ages, and storage for the city’s technical department in recent times. Much of the Møllendal area has for decades been inaccessible and unsuited for public use so making a fracture between two parts of the town. The project aims to reconnect and to give continuity to a new territory exploring transitions between land and water; the goal is to create the conditions for regenerating the area into an attractive and active waterfront neighborhood.
