Trolley Five in Alberta, Canada by Modern Office of Design + Architecture

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Article source: Modern Office of Design + Architecture

Our design for the 17Th Avenue Brewery began with a study of the commercial typologies along 17th Avenue SW. Despite the fact that this corridor is one of Calgary’s most visited destinations, it was apparent that there was very little if any interaction between the building frontages and the street.

West Dune House in Fatima, Canada by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architects

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Article source: v2com

This secondary house is located in the Magdalen Islands, facing West Dune and the sea. The clients are a retired couple that would like to spend a few months a year there.

The house was inspired by a formal exploration of sand models, seen at a Wallpaper Magazine exhibition in London. The volume measurement is inspired by local traditional architecture and by the natural shapes of wind-swept dunes. Due to its shape, the house looks as though it was sculpted out of a monolith of sand. The side walls follow the roof’s slope and extend to the edge of the deck to create an enjoyable space sheltered from the wind. The entrance is concealed in the reinforced side wall, providing protection from the weather.

46H in Toronto, Canada by baukultur/ca

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Article source: v2com

Toronto-based development company baukultur/ca just recently completed the transformation of a 110-year-old house into a contemporary, highly sustainable home and, even though strictly modern, its exterior complements the traditional Beaches neighbourhood.

The four level residence is one of the few houses in Toronto designed to minimize the carbon footprint, and its specific use of materials and finishes reduces future maintenance as well as supports the sustainable approach even further. Even though it is built to sell in a market just about to become aware of sustainability and its benefits for both the city as well as the homeowner, baukultur/ca took the opportunity and, at the same time, the risk to construct a home that not only enhance the immediate environment but also would establish new standards in design and energy efficient green building.
