Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty boutique in Vancouver, Canada by Nathan Nardin

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Article source: v2com

Designed as a prototype in 2012, Shoppers Drug Mart’s new Beauty Boutique concept is now hitting its stride. For this project, Tuxedo rethought the notion of consumer experience in the pharmacy’s beauty department and revisited the existing model within a controlled environment, focusing on architectural design. Results exceeded expectations in Bay view as well as in the Toronto Eaton Center in Ontario. The project was also very successful in 2014 in the Western regions of Canada, notably Richmond, Vancouver, and Calgary. This new year will bring a new pace to the Beauty Boutique with more store implementations in Ottawa and Montreal.

Bourdages-Cloutier Residence in Montreal, Canada by ADHOC architectes

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: ADHOC architectes

The Bourdages-Cloutier residence is a major apartment renovation where the design was developed around the idea of the duality between the stage and backstage. It is this analogy that shaped the inside of this apartment of the Masson Street in Montreal. Mainly functional, backstage contain mechanics for setting up the show. On the other side, the scene takes the appearance of an empty space where objects are meticulously placed. The architectural interpretation of the relationship stage / backstage translates into the notion served / servant spaces developed in the mid 20th century by the architect Louis Khan. The implementation of these concepts gave birth to the black ribbon going through the apartment, wrapping the backstage areas from the entrance to the bathroom, to end at the kitchen. The rest of the space is painted soberly and furbished of different natural textures. Finally, the visual identity of this project is characterized by high contrasts and offers a classic in black and white atmosphere with a chic but crude materiality.

Heather Street Residence in Vancouver, Canada by Frits de Vries Architect Ltd

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

Article source: Frits de Vries Architect Ltd

Located in the Cambie neighbourhood of Vancouver, the steeply sloping site affords views of the city and mountains beyond. The curved roof allows the mass of the new, modern home to step down the cross slope of the site without resorting to traditional forms, and imparts a sense of lightness and space to the upper floor, without losing the domestic sense of enclosure. There is a sectional split on the upper floor that isolates the master bedroom from secondary bedrooms, and allows for higher ceilings in the master bedroom. The secondary bedrooms have lower ceilings as the section defers importance to the higher ceilings of the living room below. The change in ceiling height on the main floor defines the space in an otherwise open floor plan. The rear roof terrace views the nearby park, while the front terrace has views of the city and mountains. The cross slope of the site positions the terraces above the adjacent neighbours creating a sense of privacy. The garage at lane elevation has a laneway house below that shares the rear yard with the main house. A flexible basement layout allows the owner the ability to adapt to future changes in use.

“Design of a pastry shop, storefront” in Montréal, Canada by Atelier Moderno & Anne Sophie Goneau

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

Article source: Atelier Moderno & Anne Sophie Goneau

The design of the new address of the patisserie À La Folie aims to defy all typecasts of the conventional pastry shop by giving full prominence to the superior presentation and quality of its unique products. The execution of the design begins with the storefront. The shop’s 650 sq.ft. ground floor location on the colorful street of Mont-Royal impelled the creation of a space that is distinguished by its neutrality, acting as a monochromatic backdrop to the vibrancy of both the street and the pastries within. The neutral gray interior elevates the wonderful shapes, textures, and hues of the products on display. This voluntary restraint isolates the senses, and the focus becomes only the pastries themselves; the customer almost begins to taste with their eyes!
