A new tree is born for rue Chambord. This innovative project will replace a small, dilapidated and dangerous back lot house.
The three new units have been carefully thought out and offer generous living spaces with great perspectives to the outside providing light and horizons. They respond to the major trend of urban density by offering up to four bedrooms per unit, a real asset for families deciding to stay in Montreal.
The front facade offers, with the help of a few projecting bricks, a subtle graphic game referring to a tree motif. Thus, the simplicity of the gesture ensures that the facade maintains a strong dialogue, with the nearby trees, thus creating a new reading of the place by creating a landscape unity. This game created during the laying of the brick is directly inspired by the heritage elements of the area, such as the ornaments of bricks protruding from the top of the buildings. On the front facade, the semi-circular staircase is a metaphor for the ladder that allows you to climb
at the top of the tree.
Beyond the image, the symbolic aspect of the concept represents an “intergeneration” between the various ages, or even a “regeneration” by its desire to welcome more families in
the Rosemont-la-Petite-Patrie borough.
