Siamoises Mentana-Boyer in Québec, Canada by BLOUIN TARDIF Architecture – Environnement

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Article source: BLOUIN TARDIF Architecture – Environnement 

Tucked away in the heart of Plateau Mont-Royal, on the private lot of a former commercial building, are these Siamese residences. Each co-property occupies half of the lot; their entrances are, respectively, on Mentana and Boyer streets.

The project’s constraints are those of the classic urban context: the envelopes of neighbouring buildings, joint use, and the challenge of natural light.

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

Article source:  v2com 

The Aanischaaukamikw Cree Cultural Institute has the mission of transmitting the traditional Cree culture it draws upon to future generations. The building’s concept turns to the classic architecture of the Cree people’s traditional longhouse, the shaptuan, and to the particular context of the village of Oujé-Bougoumou. In this village, built in 1992 and unique in many respects, the main buildings were set within a broad circle in the centre of the village. The Aanischaaukamikw Institute rounds out the layout of this space, where the Band Council office is also located.

Arctic Adaptations in Nunavut, Canada by La Biennale di Venezia

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Article source: La Biennale di Venezia

Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut at 15 is Canada’s national exhibition at the 14th International Architecture Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia. It is organized and curated by Lateral Office of Toronto.

Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut at 15 surveys a recent architectural past, a current urbanizing present, and a projective near future of adaptive architecture in Nunavut. Nunavut, which means “our land”, is Canada’s newest, largest, and most northerly territory. It separated from the Northwest Territories on April 1, 1999 following a hard-fought land claims agreement established in 1993. Today, there are almost 33,000 people living in 25 communities across two million square kilometres, making Nunavut one of the least densely populated regions in the world. These communities, located above the tree line and with no roads connecting them, range in population from 120 in the smallest hamlet to 7,000 in Nunavut’s capital city of Iqaluit. The climate, geography, and people of Nunavut, as well as the wider Canadian Arctic, challenge the viability of a universalizing modernity.

One-Story House in the City, Montreal, Quebec, Canada by Anik Peloquin

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Article source: Anik Peloquin

There are a few one-storey houses in almost every residential Montreal neighborhoods. They house single families and stand out from the dense setting from the beginning of the 20th century. This 900 sq.ft.-house is located at the corner of 2 busy streets in Ahuntsic. The size of the property and tight budget did not make it possible to build an extension. The interior was therefore reconfigured to fit a third room and meet the needs of this family of 4.

Terre et Eau in Rigaud, Canada By BLOUIN TARDIF Architecture – Environnement

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

Article source: BLOUIN TARDIF Architecture – Environnement

The design of the residence had to meet three important challenges: architectural reconciliation of a Mexican inspiration in a Quebec context; exploration of a prototype house with predefined materials; and the objectives of LEED® Canada certification. The living spaces traverse, overlook, and gravitate around the patio, a large volume in which the effect of vegetation and a body of water is magnified through optimization of fenestration and the building’s orientation. The volumes have irregular contours to control sunlight and views; solar gain is maximized.
