Résidence St-Hubert in Canada by Naturehumaine

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Recipient of Marcel-Parizeau Award at the 2011 Awards of Excellence in Architecture presented by the Ordre des Architectes du Québec

The clients wished to enlarge their 800sq-ft bungalow by adding a second floor to the existing structure. However, the poor conditions of the foundations quickly proved this option impossible. In turn, the architects studied the possibility to build an extension into the backyard. Two major constraints were to be found: (1) the Municipality forbade to construct higher than the existing roof membrane, and (2) the presence of rock 4-0 ft into the ground which made the construction of a basement very costly. From those limitations, an unconventional and affordable solution was developed: compressing the spaces on numerous split-levels to yield the desired rooms, with a stunning double height dining room and a generous provision of natural light.
