Woven Stories: An energy-saving artwork for a Canadian college campus in Ontario, Canada by PLANT Architect Inc.

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Article source: PLANT Architect Inc.

The Woven Stories project addresses two existing conditions: a long-standing desire on Sheridan College’s part to have a mural on the highly visible west edge of its Davis Campus, and heat gain/glare issues in the fully glazed lounge space of the Rob Turner Building, which houses the college’s Faculty of Applied Health and Community Studies. The project comprises a two-layer installation of white vinyl (heat control) and printed perforated window blinds (glare control).

Coupée Croisée (Cut & Cross) in Montréal, Canada by YH2

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Article source: v2com

Coupée Croisée is the extension of a Ville Mont-Royal cottage, the enclosed garden-city of Montreal.

With quality lands of good dimensions, the framework is overshadowed by a neighborhood of residences with poor architectural qualities.

In order to build upon the natural qualities of the location while respecting the rigorous municipal regulatory constraints, we adopted a concept that gave its name to the project. The building was cut (coupé) in two, maintaining the street-side half, and completing it with a new half focused towards the yard. The residence is organized by a cross (croisé) pattern.

The “Blanche” Chalet in La Malbaie, Canada by ACDF Architecture

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Article source: v2com

The “Blanche” Chalet, whose name evokes the spirit of the vernacular houses of the region, is situated in La Malbaie’s area of the “Terrasses Cap à l’Aigle”. Its simple and pure architecture gently complements the landscape of Charlevoix in a modern fashion.

The raw concrete materiality of the lower level is a nod to the stone foundations of the old wooden barns that once swept the landscape. This base also serves as the foundation for the main entrance and houses the technical functions of the cottage. Perched on the podium, the upper two levels are clad in a white stained wood, which is reminiscent of lime plaster that was applied to the ancestral homes of the area. The wood is smooth or raw textured and, at times, creates an openwork siding, depending on the façade, bringing lightness and joy to the house.

La Shed in Montréal, Canada by La SHED Architecture

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Located in what used to be a Plateau-Mont-Royal general store, la Shed preserves the area’s vernacular architecture while adopting a resolutely contemporary appearance that reflects the company’s image.

The workshop and adjacent meeting space are completely open and the glass façade allows passers-by to observe the architects at work. Halfway between an office and a boutique, the space redefines the traditional architect’s office. The original building’s structure, located at the center of the office, is highlighted by its neon color scheme. On one side of the office is a large white block that contains the meeting room, kitchen and stationery. The central block on the other side of the office is divided into a materials library that harkens back to the general store’s shelving units. These shelves allow light to filter through to the meeting room that is isolated by a frosted glass wall. The wood paneling, table trestles, lighting and choice of accessories combine to provide the workshop with a casual, collegial and well thought out atmosphere.

The Saint-André residence is located on a heritage street of Le Plateau Mont-Royal, and the project consisted in adding a modern extension on the back alley side while retaining the character of the built environment on the street side. We transformed the early-20th-century duplex into a single-family dwelling, with the intent of creating a bright, open-space house.

100 Broadview Lobby in Toronto, Canada by Quadrangle Architects

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

Article source: Quadrangle Architects

A self-storage facility beneath a new condominium at the corner of two busy streets, 100 Broadview was an unremarkable and rather awkward brick and beam building in Toronto’s east end. For this building’s transformation, real estate investment and development group Hullmark engaged Quadrangle Architects with the goal of creating an accessible and attractive lobby, targeting new-economy tenants. To entice the intended demographic, Hullmark wanted to make a bold statement at grade—something that would demarcate 100 Broadview as a creative hub.
