Stratus Bar & Restaurant has won the Society of British and International Design’s (SBID) Award for Best Bar & Restaurant—the first international award for B+H Architects’ interiors group.
Located in the Toronto Athletic Club, in the heart of Toronto’s Financial District, Stratus was ready for a reinvention. B+H’s design team transformed Stratus into an elegant yet relaxed space, suitable for comfortable dining and hosting multiple concurrent events. A warm space with sweeping views, Stratus has established itself as the premier destination for Toronto’s Bay street elite, with revenues doubling since the renovation.

The Bibliothèque du Boisé aims to become a place fostering a feeling of belonging, promoting exploration and discovery. Located between Thimens Boulevard and the Marcel-Laurin Park, it covers a surface area of 5,000 m² and is integrated into the site by drawing on its major elements. This isn’t a project about architecture alone: it’s also about landscape. As such, the building connects the city with the surrounding landscape, and serves as a point of connection that allows users to explore its site—inside and outside, from Boulevard Thimens as well as from the park. Visitors will discover the building by approaching it from a variety of spaces both intimate and dramatic, spaces that, by offering a variety of access pathways, set the stage for the site as well as for its users.

The residence, located in Greenfield Park, was designed for a young family settling to a suburb close to Montreal. The architect’s proposition is a sculptural composition that spreads in simple geometrical forms. The division of the volumes, the recess position of the main body just like its angle suggest a singular perspective and a dynamic volumetric that present a sensitive integration of contemporary architecture to a district dating from the 50s. Harmonizing in size, color and profiles with the sloping roof houses of the sector, the new construction is all covered by a white wood cladding.

For its latest Kinoya, interior designer Jean de Lessard has tapped into the sources to emulate in his design the primary spirit, function and aesthetics of the izakaya, as the latter was originally an informal place where people drank beer and sake. The transformation is particularly unusual that it explores through extreme design intimacy in relationships between people, making of Kinoya a true representation of the unique approach the designer has developed about the different ways of occupying a space.

The history of civilisations and cities are intrinsically tied to the presence of water. Ancient civilisations grew up in fertile river valleys and the development of cities depended on the ready availability of water for both potable use and public sanitation. The infrastructure used to control and distribute water in the urban environment has a long and distinguished architectural history.
