Hotel-de-Ville Residence in Montréal, Canada by Architecture Microclimat

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

Article source: v2com

A large rooted tree sets the ground for an expansion project to a centennial home.

A low-impact intervention

Located in the Plateau Mont-Royal, a centennial home welcomes a family who wish to breathe new life into their space and establish a new dialogue with its surrounding environment. With a vision to respect the home’s original character and preserve the large poplar rooted in the backyard, Microclimat designed a low-impact intervention for an addition that would occupy a small portion of the garden. This new space would blossom from the home through two new large openings in the existing brick wall.

Centennial College Ashtonbee Campus Library & Student Hub in Ontario, Canada by MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

Article source: MacLennan Jaunkalns Miller Architects 

Centennial College is the oldest publicly funded college in Ontario with four campuses serving the Greater Toronto Area east. Near a major intersection and in the Golden Mile neighbourhood of Toronto, the Ashtonbee Campus serves as the largest transportation technology training school in Canada. The campus is surrounded by residential, parklands, and is situated within a retail / commercial / light industrial typology. While generating successful industry partnerships and a thriving training program, the circa 1970’s campus suffered from safety concerns, accessibility issues, aging infrastructure, and lacked student support services and social gathering spaces.

Relmar in Toronto, Canada by Architects Luc Bouliane

Friday, May 13th, 2016

Article source: kriss communications

When an empty-nester couple made the decision to downsize, they knew they wanted it to be to a low-maintenance, age-in-place home, as well as an architectural showpiece. They had tried condo living but it lacked the familiarity of a low-rise dwelling. Their son, a builder, encouraged them to push beyond their traditional aesthetic and create a custom, contemporary home — something that he could help them build.

Alberni, large-scale residential tower in Vancouver, Canada by Kengo Kuma and Associates

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Article source: v2com

“The building should not be an isolated object. Buildings should be part of the city, part of the environment. I believe that is the goal of architecture in the 21st century.” ~ Kengo Kuma

In Vancouver to discuss his work, Japan’s leading architect, Kengo Kuma, personally revealed plans for his first North American, large-scale residential tower – Alberni by Kuma – proposed for the globally renowned city on Canada’s westcoast. Westbank and Peterson, Canada’s premier developers of luxury, mixed-use projects, have engaged Kengo Kuma, and his firm Kengo Kuma and Associates (KKAA) to design the 43-storey tower near the entrance to Vancouver’s famed Stanley Park. The proposed tower is part of a small collective of internationally influenced designs in the city, under the direction of Westbank and Peterson.
