This single-family house, located on Oak Avenue in Quebec-city, brings a new breath in the neighborhood of Sillery in Quebec city. The challenge was to design a modern and minimalist home that blends into the residential context while maximizing intimity and proximity. The architect’s response was a L-shaped house within it’s suroundings. Located in a very green environnement, the architects have choosen natural materials like stained natural wood, dark bricks and steel that are in echo with the neighborhood materials and with the nature present in the courtyard.

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.

Boreal Primary School in Québec, Canada by CCM2 architectes + Onico Architecture

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

Article source: CCM2 architectes

The new Elementary School of Boischatel was built on the old municipal baseball field, beside the soccer field, and is surrounded by a wonderful wooden area. The building regroups twelve classrooms, two kindergartens, a daycare, a library, a computer laboratory, few administrative offices and a gymnasium which was designed to be doubled, if needed. The steel structure of this two storey school was conceived to receive twelve more classrooms and an extension of the gymnasium. The school was designed to allow the access of the gymnasium (and its services) to the citizens of the municipality after the working and teaching hours. The proximity of the school within the wooden area and its creek creates an inspiring environment for the students and the staff, giving the impression of a “tree house/classroom”.
