Alexandra Residence / NatureHumaine

The client's priority was to maximize the natural light in their new live/work house in Montreal's Mile-Ex district. This was made challenging by the east-west orientation of the infill lot. However, our design fills even the core of the house with light through the implementation of a 2 storey light-well which runs the length of the southern side of the house. Additional light is reflected into this light-well by the client’s office space — a white volume that sits atop the northern edge light-well.

This pure box in the landscape is precariously perched off a bedrock cliff to heighten one's experience of the landscape through a sense of vertigo and a sense of floating on the sea. This strategy features the building's fifth elevation — its "belly."
