LONE RANGER HOT DOG SHOP in Shanghai, China by LINEHOUSE

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

Article source: LINEHOUSE

LINEHOUSE was asked to create a new modern fast food identity for Lone Ranger; a hot dog shop, incorporating a wild west theme. Replacing the entire façade of the shop located at the waterfront of the Hangpu River, Shanghai, LINEHOUSE created a playful composition of white timber weatherboards, raw timber, and custom printed tiles featuring an arrowhead motif. The exterior is composed of opening doors and shutter panels, which when opened reveals the continuous tile pattern which wraps the counters and floors. The exterior counters seats 6 with a further 6 seats inside. The 4m high ceiling void is painted a bright yellow with a woven rope structure which creates an apparatus for the lights to hang from.

Mid-Town Triplex in Ontario, Canada by Studio JCI

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

Article source: Studio JCI

The Mid-Town Triplex is an example of urban intensification in an established Toronto neighborhood, providing the Clients with both a principle residence and high value income suites that add to the quality and variety of rental options in the city.  The triplex comprises a basement 1-bedroom unit, a ground floor two-bedroom unit, and a 2300sf, two-storey, 3-bedroom unit for the homeowners. The existing two-storey, brick structure is one of many similar houses in the neighborhood, with a pitched roof and raised front porch with steps.  Sensitivity to surrounding context is a key consideration in the design – existing brick is reused and restored while articulating the additions and incisions in the façade with clean, rectangular volumes.  This juxtaposition clearly highlights new from old while maintaining the cadence of the streetscape. At the ground level, a canopy integrates the separate entries to each unit, creating a singular address for the house. The Clients believe that the good design and quality finishes specified by the architect resulted in higher value – confirmed upon the quick rental of the rental suites above market appraisal.

A Modern Boathouse in Ontario, Canada by Weiss Architecture & Urbanism Limited

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Located on one of the many islands dotting The Archipelago in Georgian Bay, Ontario, this private boathouse and docking facility designed by Kevin Weiss of Weiss Architecture & Urbanism Limited exemplifies a quiet and precise modernism. Through careful form-making and the use of rustic materials, the project responds gently both to the natural and cultural context of the area, where historically built-form yields to the power of the landscape with its exposed and glacially carved granite and wind swept jack pines.

Juliette aux combles by L. McComber ltée

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Article source: L. McComber ltée 

Juliette aux combles – Transforming an attic into a bookcase – “Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed.”

Subtraction
In approaching this project, we studied the composition of the existing building and identified multiple layers added to one another over time. These additions had compressed the living space since the original construction dating back to 1880. Inside the attic, we found that the current flat roof was built on top of a former sloped roof togetherreaching a thickness of over five feet which was mixed in with layers of tar. Through a subtraction process and by replacing the existing structure with new joists, we gained 5 feet of space, therefore making up a 13 foot height on the third floor. The space of the new master bedroom and artist studio gained in natural light with the integration of a ribbon window where the attic was.

Holy Cross House in Montréal, Canada by TBA / Thomas Balaban Architecte

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Recipient of the Residential space 1,600-3,200 ft2 Award at Québec’s Grands Prix du Design 2014.

Located in the city’s up and coming Southwest neighbourhood this 300 m2 detached house hides a rich spatial complexity behind its tough working class façade. Turning to the neighbourhood’s post-war veteran’s home as its formal point of departure, the architects set out to make a house that simultaneously fits in and stands out from its heterogeneous context without resorting to mimicry and without sacrificing the contemporary nature of the project.
