The Maison des étudiants de l’École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) in Montréal, Canada by Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Article source: v2com

After four years of work, the recent inauguration of the Maison des étudiants de l’École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) unveiled a signature building which enhances an entire neighborhood in the Griffintown district.

Inspired by an icehouse that once stood on the site, the crystal-like volume is remarkably light, open and airy. The mixed-use program was unified into a singular sculpted volume, its offsets interacting in a refreshing way with the more sober and introverted campus buildings. The massing was carved out on its south and east sides to create space for a future park that extends inside the building’s public program, maximizing sunlight and offering the community an abundantly glazed atrium that showcases student life within.

Clinique D diaphane: Light Therapy in Montréal, Canada by L. McComber – architecture vivante

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: v2com

A trivial space is transformed into a cutting edge and welcoming dermatology clinic.

Dr. Danielle Brassard has long dreamt of opening her own public dermatology clinic in Montréal. To meet the needs of clients who deal with eczema, psoriasis, hives and other skin conditions linked to stress, the future clinic must welcome patients in a comforting atmosphere. Her vision for the space is unlike the model of traditional medical clinics, which are often gloomy places where the comfort and well-being of the patients and professionals are relegated to the sidelines in favor of technical requirements. To turn her vision into reality, she contacted Laurent McComber in September 2014 from the architectural firm L. McComber.

Sainte-Anne Academy, the school of tomorrow in Dorval, Canada by Taktik design

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Article source: v2com

Designing an elementary school of tomorrow in a 120,000 square-foot heritage building built in 1896—that’s the challenge that Sainte-Anne Academy gave Taktik Design. From room layout to furniture design to communications, this innovative project was undertaken by Taktik Design’s industrial, interior and graphic designers. After the team proposed the initial solutions, they were given carte blanche to create an efficient environment that accommodates the latest teaching standards. The fun-filled environment at the Academy was designed with kids in mind; the space is less of an interpretation of their imaginations and more of a blank canvas for their creativity.

Article source: v2com

Located in a quiet area of the Eastern Townships in Quebec, the Nook Residence sits in continuity with the landscape in which it is part. Turning its back to the street, it offers a virtually blind facade that encourages discovery and piques curiosity. Strategically located openings and a large gap in the white mass give a hint at the beautiful scenery below as we approach the building.

Earls Kitchen + Bar Crossroads in Edmonton, Canada by McKinley Burkart Architects

Friday, June 3rd, 2016

Article source: McKinley Burkart Architects

Many food+beverage clients require design solutions for multiple locations, both nationally and internationally. McKinley Burkart recognizes the need for design that is scalable and adaptable, with individual elements that can be repeated and evolved effectively whether for two or 100 locations. Furthermore, McKinley Burkart believes in the power of interior design to develop a strong brand message and customer familiarity. The concept for Earls Crossroads, and future Earls locations, was to open and lighten the space while incorporating timeless materials that would patina over time. Ensuring design longevity, natural stone, wood, leather and concrete were used throughout the space. Creating a cohesive customer experience between multiple restaurant locations, McKinley Burkart aligned the design with the national brand. By focusing on a consistent tone, with distinct recurring components, rather than a cookie-cutter design, each restaurant location, is unique yet on-brand. The overall aesthetic creates the ideal space for comfortable and stylish dining and embodies notions of a laid-back cool vibe.

Marquette Residence in Québec, Canada by naturehumaine architecture et design

Friday, June 3rd, 2016

Article source: naturehumaine architecture et design

The project is located in the Rosemont-Petite-Patrie facing the backyard of Papineau Street, a busy commercial street in Montreal. The project consists of 6 housing units each boasting a private access. Forward, the project is characterized by its simple volume, uniformly coated with a brown brick. For their variable dimensions and offset openings instill dynamism to the front. Street side, 3 parking spaces are covered by a large terrace. To maximize the contribution of light on the first floor, it was found detached from the facade and the glass walkways with railings. Expanded metal coating covers the exterior structure of the terrace. Copper, the steel cladding covering the lower levels reminds the tone of windows that give rhythm the project.

Hotel-de-Ville Residence in Montréal, Canada by Architecture Microclimat

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

Article source: v2com

A large rooted tree sets the ground for an expansion project to a centennial home.

A low-impact intervention

Located in the Plateau Mont-Royal, a centennial home welcomes a family who wish to breathe new life into their space and establish a new dialogue with its surrounding environment. With a vision to respect the home’s original character and preserve the large poplar rooted in the backyard, Microclimat designed a low-impact intervention for an addition that would occupy a small portion of the garden. This new space would blossom from the home through two new large openings in the existing brick wall.
