Stacked House by naturehumaine

By • Oct 24, 2013

Canadian architectural firm naturehumaine has designed the Stacked House in Montreal, Canada.

Completed in 2013, this 2,518 square foot contemporary home consists of four distinct volumes which are stacked on top each other.

Stacked House by naturehumaine:

“This project was done in collaboration with the client who wished to build his own home. The site is located in a back alley of Montréal’s Plateau neighbourhood 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. A void carved out of the center of the house, provides daylight, ventilation, and private outdoor space.”
