Lévesque Project in Quebec, Canada by Mélissa Ohnona Design

Article source: v2com

Located in Laval, a Montreal suburb, this century old house underwent a complete overhaul of its interior. The owner/designer Mélissa Ohnona wanted to maximize the space as well as the natural light and exterior views from the house, to create a welcoming and functional family home.

The space had been renovated in the 90’s, leaving it oddly divided and devoid of any original charm. Therefore, it was decided they would start from scratch and completely rethink the layout. Not much was left intact; the kitchen, bathroom, powder room, even the stairs were relocated. An extension was also added on the second floor, in order to have 4 bedrooms (allowing each of their 3 daughters to have their own bedroom).

Moustiquaire Maurel-Coulombe in Québec, Canada by Guillaume Pelletier Architecte

Article source: Guillaume Pelletier Architecte 

Project Description

Canards Maurel-Coulombe is an artisanal farm that produces the finest Foie Gras in Quebec.

The clients wanted to create a space where customers could have a total gourmet experience of duck foie gras.  Like a Japanese tea room, this project is a space where art, nature, tradition & gastronomy becomes one. The contemporary exterior screen porch is an extension of an old traditional wooden house. The wood timber structure is placed in a way to make a visual connection between the farm and the products boutique.   The tasting room faces the landscape from where you can see the ducks in the field. By night, the screen porch becomes a lantern.

“Los Álamos de Fuentecisneros” Block of 59 houses in Madrid, Spain by Otto Medem Arquitectura S.L.

Article source: Otto Medem Arquitectura S.L.

As the architect, from the begining of the project, I set out the following main goals:

Make the most of the characteristics of the terrain and enhance them by choosing the perfect orientation.

Design a set of housing complex that escapes from the everyday conventionalism of collective housing, and that is able to transmit and generate feelings. I want people to be overcome with emotion as soon as they enter the complex and feel the  beauty and harmony that each home provides, without sacrificing functionality.

Departamento Parque Reforma in Mexico City by Lopez Duplan Arquitectos

Article source: Lopez Duplan Arquitectos

For some housing developments, showroom apartments must be done and the main challenge is the creation of a residential environment with all the necessary details to appeal to anyone. It is almost a dream comes true, a space that has to be design without a client, but it is exactly the opposite, it is a space that will be visited by many clients and the goal is to catch everybody’s eye and most specially to make them feel: “I want to live here”.

Open spaces are the main feature of this project located in Diana Reforma building to encourage communication and team work. In their previous location the areas were divided in too many spaces resulting in the lost of collaboration and synergies.

This architectural project was an interesting challenge because it was developed in two levels with narrow plants combined with large structural elements.
