Iron Lace Project in Quebec, Canada by Gestion René Desjardins

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Article source: Gestion René Desjardins

“It’s a beautiful, calm street, lined with trees and 1960s bungalows. On the other hand, the house that these clients had bought was in such disrepair that it was beyond saving. The municipality had therefore granted us a demolition permit, on the strict condition that the new building follow the original plan. That was a real problem, since we needed to triple the livable space to meet the family’s needs. The husband, a tall, strapping extrovert, wanted a space that would reflect his size and personality. His wife, ever so pragmatic, insisted on easy upkeep and ample storage space.”

The Beaumont House in Montreal, Canada by Henri Cleinge, Architecte

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Article source: Henri Cleinge, Architecte

Inspired to create a home to be experienced by all five senses, the Beaumont concrete house evolved as an exploration project. The design, understated, is situated in a mixed use neighborhood where residential duplexes coexist with small to midsize industrial buildings. Despite the project’s integration, a number of features distinguish the project from other buildings in the area.

Irène PAR in Montreal, Canada by Kanva Architecture

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Article source: Kanva Architecture

The urban housing project, Irène, located in Montreal’s borough, St-Henri, exemplifies innovation as a valuable design tool to individualize a building within the City. Perforated aluminium panels were customized into a novel exterior building envelope that screens the upper three storeys of an addition above an existing industrial building. Drawing an analogy with a theatrical curtain, the metallic skin acts equally to veil and to reveal the activity within, serving a per-formative function that adds a touch of spectacle to the neighbourhood.
