Résidence Roy-Lawrence in Sutton, Canada by Chevalier Morales Architectes

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

Article source: Chevalier Morales Architectes 

Located outside the village of Sutton, in Quebec’s eastern townships, the Roy-Lawrence Residence is set in a vast estate very much impregnated with the legacy of a Swiss immigrant family that came to Canada in the 1930’s. To this date, the surroundings of the residence are still defined by bucolic landscapes, iconic Swiss chalets and other buildings of similar nature that were erected along the years, always with a consistent touch of nostalgia.

Edison Residence in Montreal, Canada by KANVA

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

Article source: KANVA

A small vacant lot located at the epicenter of Montreal student life, just north of the McGill University’s Milton gates, was the basis of the latest design by KANVA. The site endured a fire in the early 20th century, which flattened the existing 19th century historic stone house; this tragedy represents only one of many narrative layers embedded in the land. The historical context of the site became the primary inspiration for the urban renewal project, which lead to the exploration of an innovative concrete fabrication technique; photoengraved concrete panels that enabled the building to tell a story.

House 60 in Toronto, Canada by gh3

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

Article source: gh3

House 60 is a renovation and addition to a 50′s suburban house on a large lot in Toronto, Canada.

The existing house was largely introverted—small windows, low ceilings—with a traditional plan—living room, separate dining room and cramped kitchen on the ground floor, and a maze of bedrooms on the second. An undistinguished building from the exterior—brick with a shallow sloping roof—adorned over time with a wrought iron front porch and aluminum awnings. However underwhelming, the existing house was considered by gh3 as a material resource to be reused, rather than abandoned, a position consistent with first principles of sustainability.

Ocean Park House in British Columbia, Canada by CAMPOS LECKIE STUDIO

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

Article source: CAMPOS LECKIE STUDIO

This project is conceived as a domestic landscape that blurs the boundary between interior and exterior space in a temperate coastal rainforest climate. It is essentially a ranch house typology with a guest house stacked upon it – designed for a physically active empty nest couple who enjoy the idea of welcoming family home for the holidays. The domestic program is spread across the entire site, across a series of stepped platforms, and the vertical vertical circulation connecting the main floor to the upstairs is deliberately understated.

One-Story House in the City Montreal, Canada by Anik Péloquin architecte

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Article source: v2com

There are a few one-storey houses in almost every residential Montreal neighborhoods. They house single families and stand out from the dense setting from the beginning of the 20th century. This 900 sq.ft.-house is located at the corner of 2 busy streets in Ahuntsic. The size of the property and tight budget did not make it possible to build an extension. The interior was therefore reconfigured to fit a third room and meet the needs of this family of 4.
