LeJeune Residence in Montréal, Canada by Architecture Open Form

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Article source: v2com

The LeJeune Residence, located in the heart of the Plateau-Mont-Royal Borough of Montreal, Canada, was built in 1890. Its transformation carried out in 2013, involved a play between municipal constraints and the clients’ vision.

The borough’s bylaws called for the preservation and reconstruction of the façade’s original architectural components and the clients wanted a resolutely contemporary project. Architecture Open Form addressed the challenge of these seemingly contradictory demands with a creative solution that catered to both.

Lake Jasper House in Chertsey, Canada by Architecturama

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

Article source: Architecturama

Whether visiting alone, with a large group of guests or as a family, the owners were looking for a relaxed, welcoming environment, conceptually similar to a cottage yet more refined, particularly in the relationships among spaces and between people. The goal was to have a present, living and enthusiastic architecture that engages the senses.

The design process, grounded in the setting, symbiosis with the site and a reduced environmental footprint, led to a reflection process on the functional elements and their optimization.

Roncesvalles Accessible House in Toronto, Canada by Solares Architecture

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

Article source: Solares Architecture

In 2013, a couple in their 50s, came to Solares Architecture with an important request – to transform their 1911 Toronto semi-detached home into a beautiful, modern, and, most importantly, accessible house.

In 2006, the husband and father of the household had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and was soon in need of a mobility device. Once the family began looking into buying an accessible home, they realized how few there were on the market. Usually, accessible houses are built-as-needed, and the option of buying one is hugely expensive. Even a bungalow would need major renovation work to become fully accessible. After assessing these costs, the family decided to instead renovate their existing home, bought in 1989.

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.
