Building on the Rock

Perched on the stormy edge of the Atlantic, Canada’s easternmost province is a difficult place to build. Where are the young architects that will rise to the challenge?

"This project deals with this beautiful challenge of daylighting a home in a suburban neighbourhood while still providing privacy."

Award of Excellence: Saint-Jérôme Performance Hall

"A very nice project, particularly in terms of creating a series of layered spaces which will result in an animated public realm."
