Coupée Croisée (Cut & Cross) in Montréal, Canada by YH2

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Article source: v2com

Coupée Croisée is the extension of a Ville Mont-Royal cottage, the enclosed garden-city of Montreal.

With quality lands of good dimensions, the framework is overshadowed by a neighborhood of residences with poor architectural qualities.

In order to build upon the natural qualities of the location while respecting the rigorous municipal regulatory constraints, we adopted a concept that gave its name to the project. The building was cut (coupé) in two, maintaining the street-side half, and completing it with a new half focused towards the yard. The residence is organized by a cross (croisé) pattern.

La Shed in Montréal, Canada by La SHED Architecture

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

Article source: v2com

Located in what used to be a Plateau-Mont-Royal general store, la Shed preserves the area’s vernacular architecture while adopting a resolutely contemporary appearance that reflects the company’s image.

The workshop and adjacent meeting space are completely open and the glass façade allows passers-by to observe the architects at work. Halfway between an office and a boutique, the space redefines the traditional architect’s office. The original building’s structure, located at the center of the office, is highlighted by its neon color scheme. On one side of the office is a large white block that contains the meeting room, kitchen and stationery. The central block on the other side of the office is divided into a materials library that harkens back to the general store’s shelving units. These shelves allow light to filter through to the meeting room that is isolated by a frosted glass wall. The wood paneling, table trestles, lighting and choice of accessories combine to provide the workshop with a casual, collegial and well thought out atmosphere.

Article source: _naturehumaine architecture et design

The Saint-André residence is located on a heritage street of Le Plateau Mont-Royal, and the project consisted in adding a modern extension on the back alley side while retaining the character of the built environment on the street side. We transformed the early-20th-century duplex into a single-family dwelling, with the intent of creating a bright, open-space house.

The Maison des étudiants de l’École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) in Montréal, Canada by Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Article source: v2com

After four years of work, the recent inauguration of the Maison des étudiants de l’École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) unveiled a signature building which enhances an entire neighborhood in the Griffintown district.

Inspired by an icehouse that once stood on the site, the crystal-like volume is remarkably light, open and airy. The mixed-use program was unified into a singular sculpted volume, its offsets interacting in a refreshing way with the more sober and introverted campus buildings. The massing was carved out on its south and east sides to create space for a future park that extends inside the building’s public program, maximizing sunlight and offering the community an abundantly glazed atrium that showcases student life within.

Clinique D diaphane: Light Therapy in Montréal, Canada by L. McComber – architecture vivante

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Article source: v2com

A trivial space is transformed into a cutting edge and welcoming dermatology clinic.

Dr. Danielle Brassard has long dreamt of opening her own public dermatology clinic in Montréal. To meet the needs of clients who deal with eczema, psoriasis, hives and other skin conditions linked to stress, the future clinic must welcome patients in a comforting atmosphere. Her vision for the space is unlike the model of traditional medical clinics, which are often gloomy places where the comfort and well-being of the patients and professionals are relegated to the sidelines in favor of technical requirements. To turn her vision into reality, she contacted Laurent McComber in September 2014 from the architectural firm L. McComber.

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.

McCulloch Residence in Montreal, Canada by NATUREHUMAINE

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Article source: NATUREHUMAINE 

The project was carried out in an old residence built at the foot of Mount Royal around the 1860s for Dr. McCulloch, after whom the avenue would later be named. The residence was subsequently divided into two houses. The project aimed to expand one of the two divisions so the owners would have a new kitchen and an art studio.
