Utilizing custom-fabricated Banker Wire mesh partitions around its indoor playing field, the stadium provides tens of thousands of soccer players with a first-class practicing and playing environment.

The design of the Stade de Soccer de Montréal pays homage to and blends in with its surrounding landscape – a former quarry now being turned into what will be the largest urban park in Montréal. Outside, the stadium shows its versatility as a structure built around the topography, not despite it.

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Article source: APPAREIL architecture

Known for its Nordic-inspired and contemporary architectural projects, the young Montreal-based firm APPAREIL architecture was selected to conceive the design of a new restaurant, Hoogan et Beaufort.

Located in a former train manufacture in the Rosemont borough of Montreal, the building had a lot of historical charm. The vast space of 2700 square feet, with its 28-foot-high ceilings and industrial character, had everything to seduce right from the start.

12 Degrees in Ontario, Canada by CORE Architects Inc.

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Article source: CORE Architects Inc.

12 degrees was designed as an urban infill project, fitting into the context of a mixed use residential area where the city block has buildings that include both the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Ontario College of Art and Design.

Given the artistic nature of the city block, the design became a playful exercise in massing and an anchor to the south-west corner of the block.  The design can be read as analogous to the stacking of toy blocks, with one of the blocks skewed at 12 degrees from the others.

Kitchener Central Library in Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Article source: LGA Architectural Partners 

Kitchener is one of Canada’s fastest-growing communities, catalyzed by its universities and high-tech industry. Built in 1962, the city’s Main Branch Public Library was not only showing the effects of everyday wear and tear, it had reached an age which its major systems and components needed replacement. The library was designed at a time when energy costs were low and awareness of greenhouse gas emissions did not exist. The librarians tasked LGA Architectural Partners to preserve and expand the original structure while making it sustainable, accessible and elegantly robust—a must for a building that serves 107,000 cardholders. They also asked that the building’s design support the transforming library mandate from “reading and researching” to “meeting, making and active learning”.

Article source: Henri Cleinge ARCHITECTE 

Located in the old Royal Bank space on St-Jacques street in Old Montreal, the Crew offices is a project defined by a 12,000 office area for a tech start-up which would also include a café for freelance workers as well as for the public.  The project presented two distinct design challenges: The first design challenge originated from the client’s requirements- how to elaborate an architectural relationship and construct boundaries between the various program functions.  The second challenge became a deeper questioning on how to approach design in the context of a heritage building.

Vivre le Chantier Sainte-Cath in Montréal, Canada by KANVA

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: v2com

IMAGO is the winning entry of the City of Montreal’s two-phase competition entitled ‘Vivre le chantier Sainte-Cath!’. St. Catherine Street, an important commercial artery in downtown Montreal is undergoing a four-year infrastructure improvement plan along several blocks, including underground infrastructure upgrades, incorporation of new public transit systems and increasing pedestrian sidewalk area and access. The project seeks to ameliorate the streetscape’s overall appeal, improve its functioning and promote economic growth over the long term. During the construction different segments of the street will be closed to car traffic, however pedestrian traffic and access to all stores will remain functioning. It is inevitable that this period of transformation will have an impact on people’s daily routine and the operation of the city.
