Soon to be one of Quebec’s most in-demand sports and entertainment destinations, Laval’s Place Bell is now officially open! The new home of the Laval Rocket – an American Hockey League (AHL) team affiliated with the Montreal Canadiens – Place Bell features a 10,000-seat arena with NHL-compliant ice rink that can easily transform into a performance amphitheatre. It also boasts a 2,500-seat Olympic speed and figure-skating arena, and a regular, 500-seat skating rink, both of which are accessible to the public and sports organizations.

The owners purchased a small house on a secluded lakeside lot in La Malbaie.

The urbanite owners lived there sporadically for six years to acclimate themselves to the natural setting and define their needs.

The Saint-Laurent apartment is located in Montreal’s Mile End district, the heart of the city’s vibrant arts scene. Both the apartment and furniture were designed by Atelier Barda.

The architectural firm was given the mandate to redesign this 1150 sq. ft. space, which serves as accommodation for the international clients and collaborators of a company in the fashion industry.

A cross between a hotel room and loft apartment, the space required a simple yet warm design treatment that would suit its diverse occupants.

La Géode in Montreal, Canada by ADHOC Architectes

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Article source: v2com

ADHOC architects team is proud to present the recently completed project “La Géode”, carried out in cooperation with the young promoters of Knightsbridge. The project is located on “de la Roche” Street, in the neighbourhood of Le Plateau Mont-Royal, a vibrant district with an exceptional urban vitality. In the light of its situation, the project aims to give a new breath to its plot with a contemporary residential building of five housing units. It should intend to reflect all the energy of this strategic sector where young professionals mix with families and couples. Thus, the project has to be a soft densification that fits into the current urban landscape without distorting it. One of the concerns is to keep families in the city by creating a quality living environment based on a green strategy.

Creating Place with Art in Toronto, Canada by II BY IV DESIGN

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Article source: v2com

Creating a sense of place, art can bolster an interior by enhancing its overall atmosphere. Art can arouse one’s curiosity and draw you in. And experienced in relation to its setting, it can positively affect your mood. Art can also set the tone for a theme, thereby shaping one’s impression of a space.

Art requires an audience to make it complete. With its natural ability to slow one’s progression through space and encourage interactions, art often promotes community connectivity. In a study by the Knight’s Foundation that surveyed 43,000 people, it was found that aesthetics of a place is indeed linked to one’s attachment to their community.

As Lemay celebrates 60 years of groundbreaking design, a review of its most defining projects—Montreal’s Four Seasons Hotel and Residences[i], the Bibliothèque du Boisé[ii], Montreal’s Place Vauquelin and Place d’Armes, the new international jetty at Montreal-Trudeau Airport[iii], Quebec City’s Paquet Wharf and the protective glass casing of the Grand Théâtre de Québec; the coastal promenade of the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, the Holiday Inn’s glamorous new look in Brooklyn, NY—is proof that its long and much-awarded history shapes its present and future as one of Canada’s leading integrated design services firms.

Real Properties Offices in Ontario, Canada by dpai architecture inc

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Article source: dpai architecture inc

This office renovation provides a new home for the property managers of Jackson Square, located in Hamilton, ON. The 40-year-old Jackson Square Mall is an indoor shopping mall and commercial complex located in the city core. Built throughout the 1970’s, Yale Properties have been rebranding the mall to rid it of its outdated image, to better integrate it with the surrounding urban fabric, and give it a new distinct identity. Similarly, the Jackson Square Management’s offices were outdated and incongruent with the mall’s new branding. This project is one of 15 separate construction initiatives that form the overall rejuvenation of this property.

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Article source: v2com

The project site is situated between the existing Émile Legault School and Raymond Bourque Arena, both of which are horizontal in form and neutral in character. For this project, it thus became vital for the design of new sports complex to create a visual and physical link between the Marcel Laurin Park (to the north of the site), and the projected green band that will run along Thimens Boulevard.
