VICE Toronto in Canada by DesignAgency

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

Article source: DesignAgency

When VICE Media — the world’s preeminent youth media company— needed a new Toronto bureau — having expanded from 50 to over 150 people in over a year— they engaged DesignAgency because the two companies share a common core: both are cross disciplinary, collaborative and creative. VICE asked for a space that reflects their strong brand, and exudes the youthful energy that they are famous for. Attuned to the needs of its client, DesignAgency infused a decommissioned factory with the informal, relaxed vibe of a classic cigar lounge, then stealthily layered technology, lighting and sound equipment throughout. The results are instrumental for the VICE team to produce their multi-platform content, while allowing the open-plan space to play triple duty as a day-to-day working environment, a film and recording set and a showpiece that speaks to the personality and values of the company.

Hemmingford House in Canada by SIMARD architecture

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Article source: v2com

In the vast rural fields south of Montreal, a new residence takes root. Like a fieldstone unveiled amongst the furrows of a ploughed field, a stratified monolith of slate emerges from the earth. Eroded, sculpted and fragmented by time and the forces of nature, this mineral formation becomes the pedestal upon which new life is anchored.

Condo Hôtel de Ville in Québec, Canada by ACDF Architecture

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

Article source: ACDF Architecture

The Hôtel-de-Ville Residence is a multifamily residential project in the Plateau Mont-Royal district of Montreal. This historic workers neighbourhood offers a variety of architectural richness, including the extensive use of traditional red clay brick. The project consolidates a block corner with an existing twostorey building through the construction of a new three-storey building that cantilevers over the existing volume. The project is distinguished by creating unity and cohesion between a patrimonial building and contemporary architecture, through a simple stripped-down language. For ACDF Architecture, the Hôtelde- Ville Residence was an opportunity to reflect on the expression of contemporary urban architecture.

Annex House in Ontario, Canada by DUBBELDAM Inc. Architecture + Design

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Article source: DUBBELDAM Inc. Architecture + Design 

When the client, a young couple, purchased this property with its two structures – the main building and coach house – both had been used as rooming houses for many years. The client wished to convert the fragmented property back into a single family residence, suitable for their expanding family and optimized for entertaining, while taking advantage of the two buildings on the site. The distinct structures define an outdoor space that has been designed as a courtyard and outdoor extension of the kitchen and dining rooms. The courtyard evolves from season to season and from day to day; it is a quiet resting place, brunch patio, and reading sanctuary on the way to yoga in the coach house, coming alive with the kids’ after school activities or as guests arrive to a backyard barbeque.

Résidence Belcourt in Québec, Canada by Atelier Pierre Thibault

Friday, December 9th, 2016

Article source: Atelier Pierre Thibault

The Residence Belcourt is a typical Canadian house built in 1974. Clients underwent major renovations in order to optimize the functionality of the residence while maximizing the entry of natural light. Only the overall volume, the exterior stone walls and the pool were kept from the original house. The project now shows a concept. The side walls integrate services and storage in order to free the heart of the ground floor. New living spaces are organized around a sculptural plywood staircase. The new organization of spaces promotes family life within large communicating areas. The addition of a pergola in cedar slats and a generous terrace at the rear allows to offer outdoor living spaces that extend to the garden and to facilitate access to the inner courtyard.
