Playster Headquarters in Montréal, Canada by ACDF Architecture

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Article source: ACDF Architecture

Playster is a young and fast-growing company that provides a global subscription-based entertainment service, with offices in New York and Los Angeles. ACDF Architecture was commissioned to design its headquarters on Peel Street in downtown Montreal. To give their clients an environment suited to the company’s high energy and creativity, the architects transformed the space using a contemporary, open concept design highlighted by a clever play of bright colours and white surfaces. Making the most out of the original setting, the architects used the existing walls to create a variety of vibrant, new private spaces, thus saving resources and money.

Dead Garden II in Quèbec, Canada by VAZIO S/A

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Article source: VAZIO S/A 

Trees die whereas new trees are born. Growth and becoming are tools of the landscape architect, but rarely the cycle of life and death is explored in garden design.

Departing from an inexorable phenomenon – every life is a foretold failure –, Dead Garden II proposes a garden made of branches and employs dead organic matter as something that can trigger another life.

VICE in Montréal, Canada by Martha Franco Architecture & Design

Monday, September 11th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The Quebec head office for VICE, an edgy media outlet that was founded in Montreal, represents a return to roots for the company. The project is located in a former printing workshop full of history in Griffintown, an ex-industrial neighbourhood.

Given this setting, Martha Franco Architecture & Design, partnering with Roker construction, aimed to plainly emphasize the unadorned character of the building and to enshrine the group of journalists with similar unedited, frank character. Thus the design was carried out with a specific focus on functionality and bluntness.
