Chamfer House revisits a post and beam dwelling designed in 1977 by Kevin Borland, the Hildebrand House. It sits within an established garden on Oliver’s Hill, a crucible of late modernism overlooking Port Phillip Bay. Our clients approached us soon after moving in. They wanted to protect the timber ceilings, exposed Oregon structure and fingerjointed window frames they loved, while also updating the house to suit their young family.

The Biodome, originally built as a velodrome for the 1976 Olympic Games, and converted into a natural science museum in 1992, launched an international competition in 2014 to revitalize its visitors’ experiences as part of a city-wide renewal plan to celebrate Montreal’s 375th birthday. The winning entry convinced the client and international jury to rethink the relationship between mankind and nature as well as use the renovation to bolster the centre’s social mission to educate the public. The Biodome is an integral member of Space for Life, a series of museum pavillons that showcase to the public natural sciences, including an insectarium, a botanical garden and a planetarium, which are all located within the Olympic Park in the East side of Montreal. Each year Space for life receives over 1.7 million visitors including many tourists, educational camps and schools, making it one of Canada’s most important museum complexes.

Restoration of the medieval apse and
rennovation of the external area.
The actual building of the former church of San Giuliano is what remains of a large and important settlement already documented in 774 A.D.
Together with the Basilica of S. Giulia, it is an important example of early medieval architecture in the territory south of the city of Bergamo. The settlement was born to manage and control the large possessions of the wealthy lombard families. During the XII century it became the site of a female Benedictine monastery, in this period the settlement lived one of its richest and most important moments, in which begin the reconstruction of the church in the Romanesque style.

The living and business house was built in 1893 and accommodates six 3.5-room apartments, an art gallery in the ground floor and a motorcycle workshop in the basement.
The dwelling levels are fully refurbished. The formerly North and street orientated living-/dining room is now facing the quiet south. The floor plan, which was divided into small sections with entrée, bathroom and kitchen, is now dissolved. A new infrastructure box with bathroom and kitchen is added and is spliting the loft like room in entrance, living and dining area.

The task was to transform the ground floor of a 70’s office building, used as a kindergarten, into a clean and contemporary house for a collector.
Some 16 tons of concrete were cut away, to enlarge the windows overlooking the two level garden. Remaining were three concrete pillars, which were integrated in the floor plan of the apartment using them for the fireplace, the closet and the TV wall… creating so an open but organized and structured space.

In this typical 17th Century flat located in the heart of the Marais, three working axes have structured the work :
– Within the 36 m2 space, there will be a bedroom, a dinner-area, a lounge, an office, a kitchen and a bathroom.
– There will be an illusion of a larger surface by visually lengthening the flat.
– The space will be transformed while keeping the character of the old…
