L. McComber ltée as Architects

A new mixed-use building featuring eight dwellings houses the firm's offices, a short walk from Plaza Saint- Hubert!


The dwellings are organised around a large inner courtyard which provides access through two carriage entrances. Half of the apartments open on Saint-Hubert Street while the other half faces the alleyway. Apart from the two studios on the 2nd floor, each apartment has its own mezzanine that opens on to a large private terrace. The double height so created provides the living room with a beautiful natural light.


The exterior finishes opposes a matt and horizontal Saint- Marc stone with a vertical and ultra-reflective steel cladding. In the inner courtyard, the cladding brings light to the two commercial space on the ground floor, warming the souls of the architects who will establish their practice there. Built below the sidewalk, the two identical storefronts opens on Saint-Hubert Street, inviting passers-by on their way back from the Plaza.
