The site is located in a back alley of Montréal’s Plateau neighborhood and the design reflects the patchwork of extensions and renovations typically found in Plateau alleyways.

The constraints of the site called for a house that was built upwards versus outwards. Four boxes clad in different materials are stacked one on top of the other.
