Vivre le Chantier Sainte-Cath in Montréal, Canada by KANVA

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: v2com

IMAGO is the winning entry of the City of Montreal’s two-phase competition entitled ‘Vivre le chantier Sainte-Cath!’. St. Catherine Street, an important commercial artery in downtown Montreal is undergoing a four-year infrastructure improvement plan along several blocks, including underground infrastructure upgrades, incorporation of new public transit systems and increasing pedestrian sidewalk area and access. The project seeks to ameliorate the streetscape’s overall appeal, improve its functioning and promote economic growth over the long term. During the construction different segments of the street will be closed to car traffic, however pedestrian traffic and access to all stores will remain functioning. It is inevitable that this period of transformation will have an impact on people’s daily routine and the operation of the city.

Altaïr house in Québec, Canada by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architects

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Article source: v2com

This house, whose name refers to the brightest star in the Aquila constellation, is located in Cap-à-l’Aigle, in the region of Charlevoix. Altaïr means “The Flying Eagle.” What makes the house stand out is its “V” shape and long facades that are suspended over nature. While discrete from the street and closed to the north, it unfolds toward the river, as though to take flight.

Milner Modern Residence in Vancouver, Canada by Comelite Architecture & Structure

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

Article source: Comelite Architecture & Structure

In Canada, by grasping a modern home renovation, this is the new outcome of a usual quiet family house. With a garage ducked into the lowest ground; what stood before on its topper level, being seen at front sight was a one-floor building.

Now though after removing meters of soil that blocked our entrance design, the residence can make full use of their fresh inserted third floor by taking its new implemented stairs. There is a whole pitch wide enough to fit an open kitchen leading into the dining area as well as a living room next door. Just how the client has asked for and couldn’t believe how we managed it.

Viger Square is about to reclaim its past glory thanks to a complete redesign and redevelopment led by the landscape architects at NIPPAYSAGE.

Work will begin on the first phase, affecting the square’s two western blocks – part of Montreal’s 375thanniversary legacy – in the spring of 2017. The two eastern blocks will be the focus of the next phase, completing the revitalization of Montreal’s very first square outside the old town’s fortifications.

Don River House in Toronto, Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: LGA Architectural Partners

The parents of a close-knit, multi-generational family wanted a quiet and easily maintained urban retreat as a comfortable place for their family to enjoy a variety of experiences, alone or together, particularly outdoors. They were also extremely interested in land stewardship. In response, LGA Architectural Partners master planned the family’s existing home into an unusual and holistic environment that exemplifies a new form of luxury: a non-material and restorative environment that is designed to foster connections with both family and nature. In an affluent area of Toronto and on the bank of a tributary of the Don River, the property is unique, a blurring of indoor and outdoor spaces that engage the family with their setting while also fostering biodiversity and wellness.

Adams Fleming House in Toronto, Canada by LGA Architectural Partners

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Article source: LGA Architectural Partners

On a street of historic, working-class cottages in Toronto’s west end, adjacent to a railway line and a supermarket parking lot, a vacant auto-body shop may have seemed like an unlikely impetus for a residence with a domestic character. The clients—Debbie Adams, a graphic designer, and Peter Fleming, a furniture designer/craftsman—had a limited budget but considerable talent and resources. Working with Levitt Goodman Architects, the project became a laboratory for artistic collaboration and experimentation. Over several years they have transformed the industrial site into an artful urban oasis.

Piknic Électronik in Montréal, Canada by L. McComber

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Fourteen years ago, four amazing electronic music visionaries created an event that revolutionized the Montréal cultural scene:Piknic Électronik. Just a few minutes from downtown on the picturesque Île Sainte Hélène, the Sunday afternoon celebration has become so huge that it draws top DJs from around the world. In 2007, the success of Igloofest, a winter version of the same concept, exploded the phenomenon. Today, the formula has been replicated on an international scale, from Barcelona to Melbourne, through Dubai and across to Santiago. To give their ever-expanding team a vibrant yet practical place to work, the producers contacted the architects at L. McComber. The new HQ will be fun, laid back, open and productive…just like the young company!
