Marquette Residence by Naturehumaine
View Slideshow

Marquette Residence is a minimalist house located in Montreal, Canada, designed by Naturehumaine. The project is located on a busy commercial street facing the backyard of Papineau Street. The six-unit building has private access for each individual residence, as well a shared backyard space.

The front of the building consists mainly of darkened brick and staggered square windows. The structure is a simple rectilinear volume that uniquely sets itself apart from neighboring buildings without being overbearing. Facing the street, three parking spaces are covered by a large terrace.

In order to maximize lighting on the lower level, the terrace is detached from the facade, and utilizes glass railings with semi-transparent walkways. An expanded metal coating covers the exterior structure of the terrace. Copper is utilized as accents throughout the space in order to give rhythm to the project.
