“The project’s thematic orientation is based on an analogy. A succession of ideas which nourish intersect and form a pattern, a framework of action. It is based on the concept of building ties… ” In anticipation of an increase in its services planned over the next few years, the STM will expand its fleet of busses and must build a new transport centre.

We were given the task to design a single storey building, the ubiquitous factory / warehouse building with front office. A dissection of the program provided us with a simple theme. By nature of its program, the building consists of two independent spaces. The heart and soul of the building is the letter carriers sortation facility, a function likely defined as ‘blue collar’ and not far from functioning and appearing just like that of a “factory”.

This project is a lane way structure that was designed prior to the City of Vancouver’s Laneway Housing Initiative. It was conceived with two specific programmatic scenarios in mind – and immediate requirement for an 800sf working artist’s studio, storage space, and covered parking space; as well as a future agenda to be able to easily occupy the structure into a one-bedroom lane way dwelling.

De Farine & D’eau Fraîche is a pastry boutique, whose concept is founded on love, naiveté, and escapism. In designing the space, Surface3 sought to capture the essence of pastries and the way we enjoy them in a way that is simple, magical and lasting; from the exchange of pastries as a ritual signifying love and friendship, to the pleasure inherent in simple indulgence.

c3studio’s interior architecture design for Condo Canal Lachine in Montréal (Québec, Canada) won top honors in the residential/kitchen category in the annual Quebec competition Grands Prix du Design in 2011. Beyond its apparent simplicity, the interior space of the residence reveals a visual personality that evokes a monolithic sculpture rather than simply a living space.

Set on the Cliff-side of a much-cherished lake, this cottage seeks to enhance the extraordinary surrounding scenery through the thoughtful integration of building elements with the natural assets of the site and terrain. This dwelling emerges form the rock formation of the cliff using the same local granite to form its base. A central core acts as an anchor that circulates movement, light and air into the living spaces that pinwheel and cantilever off into the landscape. In spite of its modest scale, the residence easily accommodates the family of four by providing amenity for dinning, cooking, living, reading and sleeping which are each carefully tuned to the unique view, light and breezes of the cliff. To balance the heavy mass derived from the fireplaces; cantilevered volumes, flying roofs and floor to ceiling glass are used to achieve a lightness of form as it works to bring the lake into the living spaces.

Located in Torontoʼs Bloor West Village neighbourhood the Hewitt Avenue House was conceived as an urban home that places a bold emphasis on natural materials, sustainable design and contemporary living. The home was constructed on the site of an existing home typical of Torontoʼs older neighborhoods and just steps from Bloor Street. While renovation was considered, rebuilding was the most cost effective way to achieve the project goals to create free flowing open plan spaces with natural day lighting, ventilation and a high performance envelope.
