8th Ave in Montreal, Canada by NatureHumaine

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Article source: NatureHumaine

This intervention transformed a residential two storey duplex in Rosemount into a single dwelling unit by completely reorganizing the interior and constructing a 430 sqft extension in the rear.

The extension includes a master bedroom on the second floor and a family room that gives onto an intimate garden at ground level. Standing proud on a typical Montreal laneway, the extension acts as a beacon of novelty and dynamism. While little work was done to the front facade, this extension was designed in contrast, with bright colors, an angled form, and generous glazing.

House of wood in Chamartin, Madrid, Spain by Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Article source: Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos

The decision to build a new house in a 1950’s neighbourhood of single family dwellings had to confront the by-laws which not only prohibited the demolition of a previously existing building lacking any architectural value, but also explicitly protected the original construction materials as well as its volume, covered by a hipped roof. Our proposal produces an in-depth transformation of the building on the basis of just two architectural operations: a new wood envelope around the existing volume of the old house, and a central spine that runs through the full height of the interior spaces.

PREVIOUS STATE
Els Encants is a centenarian marketplace set outdoors in an informal way. Its former location was close to the market’s new grounds both at Glories Square.

A flee-market dedicated to auctions and the sale of second hand objects, furniture, clothing and all sorts of curious and bric-à-brac. Its origin goes back to the 14th Century. It began its activity at Glories in 1929 occupying a public site of nearly 17.000 m2 in an improvised way, and developed under a temporary basis, becoming a much loved, unique space in the city. The new market is the first step of an important City project: the reform of Glories Square, Cerda’s central square at the junction of the three main avenues of his Plan.
