At the heart of the University of British Columbia Point Grey campus, two wings of the aging Biological Sciences complex have been completely transformed and renewed through an innovative approach taken by the owner, architect, consultants and contractor that saw the South Wing, which dates from 1957, and the West Wing which dates from 1970 and faces Main Mall, being fast-tracked through design and double-shift construction in only 19 months to meet an extremely aggressive federal stimulus funding deadline.

Monte Clark Gallery in Vancouver, Canada by D’Arcy Jones Architecture

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

Article source: D’Arcy Jones Architecture 

A new commercial art gallery was carved from the shell of a derelict bulldozer repair shop in the old Finning industrial complex.  The design process was more of an archaeological excavation than a traditional renovation, stripping away layers of grime to showcase the tough bones of the 1963 concrete block building.

Centrexpo Drummondville in Canada by CCM2 architectes + Bilodeau Baril architectes

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

Article source: CCM2 architectes + Bilodeau Baril architectes

The Centrexpo Drummondville is the most up-to-date exhibition center in the province of Quebec. The building shows the avant gardist side of Drummondville by showing an actual and contemporary image. The designers intend to show a progressive architecture according to the time of the day, a fully glazed building which reveals the activities and dynamism of the location. Different opacity in the fenestration allows to filter natural light at daytime and makes it look like a glowing lantern at night.

Maison Terrebonne in Montréal, Canada by la SHED architecture

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Born from an extreme transformation of a typical 90’s bungalow, the “Maison Terrebonne” is located on a vast wooded plot of land. Although certainly contemporary, the new residence is built on the same foundations as the original house while preserving one of its principal characteristics; split levels. This principle is at the very heart of this building’s new architecture. This thorough building overhaul, in combination with a larger upstairs, was designed in order to meet the needs of a person living alone. Despite a small 1500 square foot living space, the residence offers vast open rooms with an abundance of natural lighting.
