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.

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.

1st Avenue Residence in Montréal, Canada by Architecture Microclimat

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

Article source: v2com

This new sun-filled home is part of Montreal’s urban narrative yet offers all the advantages of a residential community.

Renewed typology

Montreal’s residential neighbourhoods, densely sowed throughout the 20th century, are interspersed with tiny homes, strewn here and there in the urban landscape. When these buildings are left behind and go on sale, they offer architects a new playground to explore their work, to find creative ways to integrate a contemporary lifestyle in more traditional streets at the heart of the city.

A New Viaduct for the MIL Campus of the University of Montreal in Canada by civiliti

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Article source: civiliti

A simple viaduct, located at the entrance of the University of Montréal’s future campus, creates a unique visual and spatial happening.

In forthcoming years, the University of Montréal, one of the city’s major institutions, will be opening a second campus located on a former railway yard.

Existing tracks had to be relocated in order to accommodate the new facilities and a new viaduct was built over the campus’ future access road. The site was dug to allow the underpass, then bermed up slightly to accommodate the 24-metre steel bridge structure. The reinforced concrete abutments extend into zigzagging retaining walls, creating a dynamic mineral landscape.

Habitat 67 in Montréal, Canada by UQAM Centre de Design

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: v2com

This summer, the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) Centre de Design will host a special exhibition examining architect Moshe Safdie’s pioneering urban housing complex Habitat ’67, its manifestation over the course of Safdie’s global career, and its lasting influence on the architectural field at large. A Canadian National Heritage Site and living landmark, Habitat ’67 evolved from Safdie’s thesis project at McGill University and was commissioned by the Canadian government, the province of Quebec, and the city of Montreal as a major, living exhibition for the 1967 World’s Exposition. From the moment it opened, Habitat ’67 captured the international public imagination and has become an enduring icon of Expo ’67 and Canadian pride. It remains to this day a source of inspiration for architecture devoted to humanistic ideals.

La Cardinale in Montréal, Canada by L. McComber

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

Article source: v2com

For a long time, this semi-detached house built in the 1950s in Montréal’s Ville-Saint-Laurent neighbourhood was home to a family of three young children. Over the years, many extensions were added to its aging structure. At the back, its broken-up spaces had only one opaque door and four small windows. Built without a foundation and worn by time, the annexes in the backyard were keeping the abundant natural light from coming into the kitchen. After the children fled the coop, the house was due to undergo major renovations, particularly to meet the needs of the owner’s new lifestyle. The owner entrusted his project to L. McComber architects with three goals in mind: open the living spaces, make the most of the natural light and garden view, and preserve the spirit of this family home filled with memories.
