Woodlands Community Garden Shed in Vancouver, Canada by BRENDAN CALLANDER

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Article source: BRENDAN CALLANDER

This garden shed was designed and constructed in partnership between UBC architecture students and the Woodlands Community Garden Club. This structure is the focal point of the garden.

It acts as a gathering spot for local education programs and provides a practical storage solution. The unique form of the shed was designed to prevent shadows from being cast on surrounding garden plots while at the same time shading the central meeting space.

Maison de Chateaubriand in Quebec, Canada by ANIK PÉLOQUIN ARCHITECTE

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Article source: ANIK PÉLOQUIN ARCHITECTE

The environment of this former stationmaster house has radically changed in recent decades. On the west side, the railways have given way to a big park with trees that have since matured. On the east side, there is now a suspended highway that cuts through the city. The renovation and expansion of this property fits into this transformed context.

University Boulevard Transit Shelters in Vancouver, Canada by PUBLIC

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

Article source: PUBLIC

At the main entrance to the UBC campus along University Boulevard are two strategic insertions into the transit infrastructure that provide covered shelter for the trolley-bus loop. The transit shelters act as a conceptual extension of the nearby line of Katsura trees. Slender steel columns are arranged in a staggered line and hold up an over-sized cellular wood structure clad in glass.

ALEXANDRA RESIDENCE in Montreal, Canada by NatureHumaine

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

Article source: NatureHumaine

The client’s priority was to maximize the natural light in their new live/work house in Montreal’s Mile-Ex district. This was made challenging by the east-west orientation of the infill lot. However, our design fills even the core of the house with light through the implementation of a 2 storey light-well which runs the length of the southern side of the house.

Stacey-Turley Residence in Ottawa, Canada by Kariouk Associates

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Article source: Kariouk Associates

The requirements for this project called for the design of a small home that would respond to the evolving life needs of a young couple, with two small boys, who intend to live their lives here for the next half century.  A significant spatial challenge from the start of the project was that the maximum allowable width of the house could only be twenty-four feet, hence the house would necessarily need to be long; because windows on the long sides of the home were greatly restricted by zoning regulations, there was an immediate design challenge to bring light into the long interior volume that otherwise would be dark.

BRASSEUR DE MONTRÉAL in GRIFFINTOWN, Canada by BONE Structure®

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Article source: BONE Structure® 

With the inauguration of its new space, the restaurant-bar Brasseur de Montréal becomes the Montreal showcase for a commercial application of the BONE Structure® light steel construction system.

Using BONE Structure technology, part of Brasseur de Montréal’s outdoor terrace was closed in to expand the restaurant by 2,000 square feet, doubling its capacity with seating for 85 extra diners. “Our new space is superb,” notes Marc-André Gauvreau, vice-president and founder of Brasseur de Montréal, “with lots of light and an industrial feel that fits with the restaurant’s ambience. And it was all built in just two days, with no dust or waste.
