Rebirth of The York Theatre in Vancouver, Canada by Henriquez Partners Architects

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

Article source: Henriquez Partners Architects

The York Theatre renovation is the result of a decades long struggle to save a historic community theatre from demolition.

Originally built in 1913 as the Alcazar Theatre, the building changed identities numerous times over its storied 100-year history. Ten years after it first opened, it was purchased by the Vancouver Little Theatre Association, (Canada’s oldest continuously operating community theatre company), which reopened it as the ‘Little Theatre’. Then a major renovation, introducing an art deco style exterior, led to its re-launch in 1940 as the York Theatre.

This small home located in the middle of the woods was designed for 2 outdoor enthusiasts. This lakefront house is situated on a steep terrain in Gatineau. To reduce construction costs and minimise impact on the ecosystem, it sits on the foundations of an old 24′-0″x36′-0″ chalet. A large partly-covered deck runs along 3 sides of the house. It is an integral part of the house’s architecture and provides extra living space during summer.

Blue Hills House in Québec, Canada by La SHED Architecture

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Article source: La SHED Architecture

Perched on a steeply inclined surface over swamps, the single story residence slides gracefully between the trees and is only hardly visible from the street. As per the occupants’ and architect’s wishes, the house has a dual relationship with its environment; from the outside, it is camouflaged in its setting and is as discreet as possible. From the inside, the house is completely open to its surroundings, and its occupants are met with scenery that is in constant evolution.

The House in Frogs Hollow, a 2000sf country retreat, is located on a long slope of the Niagara Escarpment overlooking Georgian Bay. The property is a collection of eroded clay hills and protected watershed zones blanketed with a dense field of hawthorn and native grasses. It is not picturesque, but tough and impenetrable.

RS1 – 002 Kennedy Residence in Vancouver, Canada by Campos Leckie Studio

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: Campos Leckie Studio

The project was conceived as a modernist prototype for Vancouver’s ubiquitous RS-1 zoning district. The project explored the development restrictions of the residential regulations as well as the limitations of building within an urban context. The process was meant to generate a set of guidelines for what we have termed a ‘flexible prototype’ that could address the contextual differences of individual sites in a way that allows for a customized integration of passive environmental strategies, the incorporation of exterior space as part of everyday living, and the provision of an affordable and flexible live work space.
