SHAFT HOUSE in Toronto, Canada by rzlbd [Reza Aliabadi]

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Article source: rzlbd [Reza Aliabadi]

Introduction

“Design belongs to everyone.” Says Reza Aliabadi, the architect of “Shaft House”.

The Shaft House idea was derived from the architect’s concerns about the affordability of design.  Walking down on Danforth and Woodbine avenues in Toronto, an affordable neighborhood with not too many different building types one might not expect to see a contemporary building in the area let alone a contemporary house. “This neighborhood is full of houses that look all the same. People think it is expensive to own designs. But Toronto deserves to have more of these” says the architect while pointing out to a house in Lumsden Avenue that looks fairly surreal comparing to the surroundings. Traditional modeled dwellings with their brick façades are allowing rusted steel and untreated wood panels, mysteriously covering two small windows, to be an unexpected exciting discovery in their neighborhood.

For the first time in decades, Sault College has a new academic building. Essar Hall forms a gateway that announces the new energized spirit for learning at Sault College. Here, much needed new learning spaces support future-forward teaching pedagogies. Organizing the classrooms and labs spaces around common areas that promote casual learning and interdisciplinary idea exchanges emphasizes the connectivity, community, and engagement that generates a clear sense of identity and belonging. Situated prominently at the building entrance is a flexible exhibition hall that links classrooms with aviation and natural resource laboratories, a 100 seat lecture hall and administration support spaces. An additional 8,000 square feet of interactive learning commons is strategically distributed throughout the building providing essential flexible and dynamic learning spaces for students.

Article source: v2com

Located on the shore of the Gate Lake, on a slightly sloping land of almost 80 000 pi2, the chalet takes place on the edge of a cedar wood with majestic mature incline trunk trees. Although the footprint of this two-storey building is substantial, because the roof slope follows the landscape the impact of it site integration is minimal.

This project was intended for a flat, sparsely wooded site. Completely in stone, the original house dated from the early 19th century. Its proportions were balanced but the extension made in the mid-20th century was a bit chaotic.

867 De Bougainville in Québec, Canada by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architects

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Article source: v2com

The project is a complete remodelling of a ground floor apartment in a building dating back to 1924, located in Quebec City’s Montcalm neighbourhood. The clients, a young family, decided to convert the ground floor into their main residence. The space was remodeled to make it airy, bright and more functional. The living areas are spread out through a large linear area crossing the building from east to west. Now the light flows in more freely. During the demolition work, a brick common wall was seen as an element of interest to be kept and enhanced. At the other extremity, a wall of original wooden boards was also kept to provide a touch of warmth to the bedrooms. This wood was also reused for the washroom counter.
