Grotto in Georgian Bay, Canada by PARTISANS

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: PARTISANS

The blue waters of Lake Huron—located north of Toronto—complement its majestic surroundings and offer a dream-like location for a retreat. A sensual environment, its serene landscape reminds the temporary dwellers of the harmony that exist beyond human possibilities. When PARTISANS team met on site, with a new client for designing and constructing a potential Sauna, they knew that their most prominent challenge was to make a free-standing structure that not only respected, but also matured from the context. Located within the Georgian Bay, the site is a prehistoric large-scale rock formation. Contemplated research was conducted, and through the process a Grotto was set as an inspiration that would inform the design. Grottos, historically, have been known as natural or artificial caves that are embedded deep behind the curvature of streams, and thus discovered by those who would take the time to explore.

Prince Philip Residence in Montréal,Canada by Thellend Fortin Architectes

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Article source: v2com

This project involved the expansion of a spacious single-story Outremont residence built in the 1960s. Situated on a site with a steep incline and majestic view, the two-floor expansion was designed to offer a generous window on the horizon.

The architectural concept involved the addition of living spaces in the form of a long ribbon situated laterally to and in line with the contours of the existing structure. This ribbon folds and unfolds, thus offering multiple views of the surrounding landscape.

The Bibliothèque du Boisé in Québec, Canada by Consortium Labonté Marcil / Cardinal Hardy / Eric Pelletier architectes

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

Article source: Consortium Labonté Marcil / Cardinal Hardy / Eric Pelletier architectes

The Bibliothèque du Boisé aims to become a place fostering a feeling of belonging, promoting exploration and discovery. Located between Thimens Boulevard and the Marcel-Laurin Park, it covers a surface area of 5,000 m² and is integrated into the site by drawing on its major elements. This isn’t a project about architecture alone: it’s also about landscape. As such, the building connects the city with the surrounding landscape, and serves as a point of connection that allows users to explore its site—inside and outside, from Boulevard Thimens as well as from the park. Visitors will discover the building by approaching it from a variety of spaces both intimate and dramatic, spaces that, by offering a variety of access pathways, set the stage for the site as well as for its users.

Paperwhite in Montreal, Canada by Jean Verville architecte

Friday, November 14th, 2014

Article Source: V2com

The residence, located in Greenfield Park, was designed for a young family settling to a suburb close to Montreal. The architect’s proposition is a sculptural composition that spreads in simple geometrical forms. The division of the volumes, the recess position of the main body just like its angle suggest a singular perspective and a dynamic volumetric that present a sensitive integration of contemporary architecture to a district dating from the 50s. Harmonizing in size, color and profiles with the sloping roof houses of the sector, the new construction is all covered by a white wood cladding.
