Moustiquaire Maurel-Coulombe in Québec, Canada by Guillaume Pelletier Architecte

Sunday, February 19th, 2017

Article source: Guillaume Pelletier Architecte 

Project Description

Canards Maurel-Coulombe is an artisanal farm that produces the finest Foie Gras in Quebec.

The clients wanted to create a space where customers could have a total gourmet experience of duck foie gras.  Like a Japanese tea room, this project is a space where art, nature, tradition & gastronomy becomes one. The contemporary exterior screen porch is an extension of an old traditional wooden house. The wood timber structure is placed in a way to make a visual connection between the farm and the products boutique.   The tasting room faces the landscape from where you can see the ducks in the field. By night, the screen porch becomes a lantern.

Applying Art to Education in Montréal, Canada by Cégep Marie-Victorin

Sunday, February 12th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The team brought the Early Childhood Education department’s mission to life. Children play and laugh in front of a fantasy-inspired decor where the imaginary meets the natural world. Educators are depicted in the form of large watermark silhouettes that nurture the children and help them develop. Large circles dot the corridors; a nod to the importance of movement and relationships within the department. The circles represent the close connection and communication between educator and child and between child and educator.

The Wood Duck in Québec, Canada by L’Abri

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

Article source: L’Abri

The Wood Duck is L’Abri’s first built house design. A simple concept, rational plan and traditional methods of construction were put forward to simplify the construction of the project, self-build by a young carpenter with a modest budget. The architecture is humble : the little wood volume recedes in the landscape.

This little house was drawn for a young carpenter wishing to self-build his first home in Bolton, in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.

Junction Shadow House in Toronto, Canada by POST Architecture

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Article source: POST Architecture

The Junction Shadow House is a semi-detached residential dwelling that began as a mirror-image of its attached neighbour. Early in the design process, it became evident that the previous additions (front room over the porch, rear Mud Room) were structurally compromised and threatening to destabilize the original masonry structure. As a result, they were demolished, leaving the shell of the original house to work with, in the shadow of its longer neighbour. Natural light was not available from all sides, so the design focused on maximizing the light penetrating from the south, as well as moving it through the house as much as possible. The interiors are a bright white colour and the spaces are visually interconnected on all levels through a feature staircase, creating views and plays with shadows on all levels.

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.
