                                <a href="" >Marquette Residence</a> is a minimalist house located in Montreal, Canada, designed by <a href="" >Naturehumaine</a>. 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.
marquette_naturehumaine_10 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. marquette_naturehumaine_16 marquette_naturehumaine_15 marquette_naturehumaine_3 marquette_naturehumaine_14 marquette_naturehumaine_13 marquette_naturehumaine_12 marquette_naturehumaine_11 marquette_naturehumaine_9 marquette_naturehumaine_8 marquette_naturehumaine_7 marquette_naturehumaine_6 marquette_naturehumaine_5 marquette_naturehumaine_4 marquette_naturehumaine_2 Photography by Adrien Williams.
