Pavillon Alexandre Vachon in Québec, Canada by STGM Architectes

Sunday, October 7th, 2012

Article source: STGM Architectes

Laval University’s science building, the Pavillon Alexandre-Vachon, was inaugurated in 1962. After fifty years of use without any significant work done to it, the 45,000 m2 building was in need of a major facelift and complete overhaul. Designed by architect Lucien Mainguy, an important figure in Quebec’s modernist movement, the pavilion is protected by the CAMEO, a university committee that among other things is mandated to protect and maintain Laval University’s architectural heritage. A $90 million phased renovation project was put forward by the university, starting with an initial $18 million investment.

Campus 54 in Montreal, Canada by Pelletier de Fontenay

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Article source: HUBERT PELLETIER


In a context where conceiving an office building too often means an obsessive pursuit of space optimization, the Campus 54 project is surprisingly rich in program and intentions. Typical office buildings, especially when located on the outskirts of the city, largely fail to generate life and activity outside of the office space per se. This obsession with efficiency leaves a large part of the office life unaddressed. The ambition of this project was to create a setting where spaces for leisure, stimulation, relaxation, health, nature and ad hoc encounters would seamlessly blend into the workspaces.

A Sense Of Excess Bistro Japonais Kinoya in Canada by Ean De Lessard, Designer Créatif

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Article source: Ean De Lessard, Designer Créatif

Since the recent opening of Japanese bistro Kinoya on Saint-Denis Street, the Irasshaïmase salutes have not stopped in this izakaya, the Japanese answer to the tapas bar. Modern yet imbued with tradition, this little gem of Japanese cuisine deserved for its jewel case nothing but an unusually inventive design. Created by the talented designer Jean de Lessard, who had carte blanche for this project, the volumes and shapes of great simplicity are making this space shine with a total casual chic.

Bernier-Thibault Residence in Canada by Paul Bernier Architecte

Article source: Paul Bernier Architecte

The house is in Montréal, on a densely built block in the Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood. An extension and a transformation of the house had to be made to allow for a family of four. Two rooms had to be added, one for the kids and one for the adults. The house also had to be rethought to make it a coherent project in its spirit and materiality.

Located near Bromont, Québec (Canada) and surrounded by woods, this house is set in a natural clearing atop a rocky outcrop. The site offers beautiful views of the forest. In winter, when the leaves have fallen, the Appalachian Mountains are visible in the distance. This project, a weekend getaway for a couple living in Montreal, set out to provide a serene, light-filled and timeless space that would be sensitive to its natural setting.

Bureau 100 in Quebec, Canada by NFOE et Associes Architectes

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

Article source: NFOE et Associes Architectes

A new office for the century-old firm NFOE et associés architectes
NFOE et associés architectes, founded in 1912, recently moved its offices into Old Montreal. The building, the first skyscraper in Montreal – better known as the New York Life Building (1887–89) – stands out from its surroundings for its exuberant cladding of Scottish red sandstone and red granite from the Thousand Islands. NFOE’s Bureau 100 facing the historic Place d’Armes square, is thus integrated with an environment that evokes the history of the firm founded by Ernest I. Barott (as Barott, Blackader & Webster) in 1912.

artistic appeal of the site, located at the St. Urbain entrance of the Place des Arts and next to the new concert hall.
