Centre de soccer intérieur au CESM – 5 Feb 2012
On the site of the former Miron quarry and a future Ecological Park, the new Centre de Soccer intérieur emerges from the park’s artificial topography as a layer of mineral stratum recalling the geological nature of the site. The mineral stratum is articulated by a continuous roof which cantilevers over the entry plaza and folds down over the interior soccer field.

Toronto Residence

5/6 House, Toronto
Five out of six is the key formula to the brightness and openness in this house. In a city where severe weather conditions created houses with small openings, and many residents with SADs, the residents in this house will experience daylight to its fullest level in both winter and summer days. 5/6 House is an attempt to save on light bulbs!

18 Kiosk, Toronto, Ontario

Toronto Store
The particular political and economic context of this project introduced a number of challenges. The client secured a last minute, long-term lease of a large, generic two storey commercial space, but was able to negotiate the change of use and appendage of what would have been the parking garage underneath as additional retail space.
