Fallsview House in Ontario, Canada by Setless Architecture

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

Article source: Setless Architecture 

Sited above the intersection of Tew’s Falls and Webster’s falls on the Bruce Trail, this house makes a strong connection to a singular landscape. The Bruce Trail follows the edge of the Niagara escarpment – a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve – from the Niagara River, almost 900 kilometers to Tobermory at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula. On its way, the Trail passes through a mix of provincial land, municipal and provincial conservation authorities, and private land owners.

Congregation Beth Israel in Vancouver, Canada by Acton Ostry Architects Inc.

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Article source: Acton Ostry Architects Inc.

Since 1948, Congregation Beth Israel has been located in Vancouver on Oak Street, a busy arterial corridor and historical focal point for various congregations and institutions. No longer able to meet the needs of the congregation, the facility has been extensively renovated and expanded. The existing synagogue has been retained and re-purposed for social and educational activities to provide a buffer between Oak Street and a new house of worship.

St. Augustine School in Kitsilano, Canada by Acton Ostry Architects Inc.

Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Article source: Acton Ostry Architects Inc.

The Oblates of Mary Immaculate founded St. Augustine School over one hundred years ago, at which time the school shared quarters with St. Augustine Church in a domed, three-storey, brick building located in the Kitsilano neighbourhood of Vancouver. In 1951, the original school was demolished and replaced with what was to be a temporary, single-storey, wood-frame building. Sixty-four years later, a new three-storey, 300 student, 4,200 square metre, red brick-clad school and child care facility that features fifteen classrooms, a learning commons, multipurpose spaces and allowance for a new gymnasium occupies the compact site.

Article source: dpai architecture inc

Hamilton’s downtown renewal is well underway after suffering a fate similar to many post-industrial North American cities during the late 20th century. Notably, its renewal is grassroots, centering on the arts and entrepreneurial communities. A diversity of small, locally-owned businesses have taken root and are leading the economic and urban renewal.

Hamilton Public Library & Hamilton Farmers Market in Ontario, Canada by dpai architecture inc + RDH Architects

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

Article source: dpai architecture inc + RDH Architects

The renovation of the Hamilton Public Library and Farmer’s Market was conceived as a design-driven opportunity to spur sustained urban renewal. A 96-meter long, continuous glass vestibule with LED lighting re-establishes the building’s relationship to York Street, while the interior executions are geared around elevating the library’s functionality to modern European standards. An emphasis on transparent materials facilitates a conversation between the library and adjacent market, which received a series of service upgrades.
