This project was done in collaboration with the client who wished to build his own home. The site is located in a back alley of Montréal’s Plateau neighborhood and the design reflects the patchwork of extensions and renovations typically found in Plateau alleyways. The constraints of the site called for a house that was built upwards versus outwards. Four boxes clad in different materials are stacked one on top of the other. A void carved out of the center of the house, provides daylight, ventilation, and private outdoor space.

Le client souhaite construire sa propre maison à titre d’auto-constructeur. Le terrain étant localisé sur une allée arrière de Montréal, le concept de la maison s’inspire des icones de ruelles que sont devenus les hangars. La maison joue sur l’idée de la stratification de matériaux typiques des arrières cours de la ville. Le corps de bâtiment est composé d’un empilage de quatre volumes superposés dans lequel un vide central est créé à titre de cour intérieure.
