The Hambly House in Ontario, Canada by DPAI Architecture Inc.

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Article source: DPAI Architecture Inc.

Originally built in 1939, the Hambly House is one of only a handful of Art Moderne houses to be found in Ontario. The original building, built for Jack Hambly, is a striking example of streamlined late Art Deco in Hamilton; the flat-roofed building sports an archetypal curved corner with speed-striped stucco walls, nautical-inspired detailing including a porthole window, and a prominent front door surround.

LE DIAMANT THEATER in Québec, Canada by Saucier + Perrotte architectes in collaboration with STGM architects

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Article source: Saucier + Perrotte architectes 

Our approach is based on the notions of landscape and geology that characterize the built environment of the historic district of Old Québec. Nearby, the strong presence of the Porte Saint-Jean and the defensive system that constitutes the Fortifications of the city of Québec reiterates the dual nature of these buildings that are both architecture and  landscape. Though the surrounding buildings belong to a variety of styles and eras, their  common denominator is based on a strong relationship with the mineral, and an  architectural composition in horizontal strata. This reading of the city as stacked stratum  transcends time so that we find it in all the surrounding buildings. Thus, there is a timeless horizontal frame that serves as an anchor for the realization of a contemporary project in continuity with the old fabric of the city.

Stanley Residence in Ontario, Canada by DPAI Architecture Inc

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Article source: DPAI Architecture Inc

This new private residence In Hamilton, ON communicates that a new and sustainable form can be invented while highlighting and celebrating the neighbourhood’s historical legacy. The house celebrates and reminds us of the social importance of the front porch. Its material palette is chose to be deliberately commensurate with established patterns. The form of the carport and absence of an enclosed garage increases the likelihood of spontaneous contact between neighbours in the few seconds between car and front door. The house is respectful to the context from within as well.

Abacus Lofts in Toronto, Canada by Quadrangle Architects Limited

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

Article source: Quadrangle Architects Limited 

Abacus Lofts sensitively responds to its diverse context, setting a strong precedent for midrise, mixed-use intensification in the City of Toronto. Located in the Little Portugal neighbourhood, just east of bustling Ossington Avenue on Dundas Street West, the area is dotted with gleaming galleries, boutiques and restaurants that are popular with the city’s young and trendy. Traditional churrasqueiras, bakeries and narrow, red brick homes root the long-standing Portuguese and Brazilian community. The 39-unit, eight-storey Abacus, which replaces a rundown auto services centre on an 8,000-square-foot site, plies both realms thoughtfully and artistically.

Bronze tightrope walker… welcomes Park Extension schoolchildren in Montréal, Canada by NFOE etassociésarchitectes

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Montreal grew rapidly during the first half of the 20th century and keeping pace was the construction of neighbourhood schools, often designed by well-known architects of the time. A decade ago, a major revamping program was launched by the Montreal School Board (CSDM) to deal with the serious need of upgrading their building stock. One of the first schools targeted for upgrade and expansion was Barclay School, designed in 1930 by Gordon and Thompson.
