Alexandra Residence by NatureHumaine:

“The client’s priority was to maximize the normal light in their new live/perform home in Montreal’s Mile-Ex district. This was produced tough by the east-west orientation of the infill good deal. Nonetheless, our design fills even the core of the house with light by way of the implementation of a 2 storey light-properly which runs the length of the southern side of the residence. Extra light is reflected into this light-well by the client’s workplace space, a white volume that sits atop the northern edge light-well. Spaces on the second storey also advantage from the light well’s luminosity the walls adjacent to it are totally glazed and a floor to ceiling piece of frosted glass brings a quite soft light into the bathroom.

The expressive back facade of the residence is defined by the angular geometry of the floating steel box. The front facade, even so, is composed mainly of bricks to conform with the heritage character of the neighbourhood. 2 disjuncted apertures break up the brick façade and are lined in aluminum. As only one side of the brick was glazed, a random combine of forward and backward facing bricks were laid to create a much more dynamic façade.”
