Alexandra-Marconi is a landlocked region between the Canadian Pacific Railway in the west, The Little Italy toward the east, south of Beaubien Street and Jean-Talon Street toward the north; A secretive area that has lately, encountered a famous gentrification.
The venture began with a duplex, the majority of the current structure was completely remade. Twelve feet on two stories were added to the back of the old building. In addition, exhuming the cellar, the home at long last went from 1500 to 3000sq.ft. On the same part, confronting south-west, a substantial patio was added to appreciate the sun.

A vast sky facing window, same width as the stairwell permits light to surge the focal point of the house. Two vast 3D shapes direct the design of the space. Consistent with their rationality,
MU Architecture needed to outline a structural engineering that defies, destabilizes and entrances.
The wooden steps, embedded between the two parallel dividers without residue, appear to suspend. The shadow line shaped by light above complements this impact.

The Waverly living arrangement is reliable in its acknowledgment with the necessities of a family living in urban zones. The attributes of its exteriors demonstrate the compositional qualities of its half private, half modern area. The Marquise comprises of a solitary steel board collapsed upward to cover the primary passage ventures underneath. The dark steel casings of the windows of the exterior complement the cuts openings. The thorough arrangements of the dark steel outlines around the windows uncover the thorough configuration of the veneer.
Regardless of the fact that the volumes are obviously characterized, the surfaces are richly situated without being disorderly. The block decided for the veneers, roused by those that have been generally utilized for mechanical structures segment demonstrates unpretentious brilliance varieties that vitalize the surfaces that would some way or another be excessively uniform and mix. The utilization of dark painted steel boards relaxes and adjusts the forcefulness of the deliberately differentiating dark and pink blocks.
