HUBERT

Quinzhee Architecture as Architects

Built on a former taxi dispatch site in the Maizeret district, Hubert has 24 accessible or minimally adaptable rental units close to the Hôpital de l'Enfant-Jésus and the Chemin de la Canardière. The building is located close to the streets to help better frame the urban fabric, allowing to hide the access of the underground parking at the back. The basilar, on which the large red masonry balconies typical of the district are grafted, is activated by means of separate entrance vestibules, vegetated runners and wide frames punctuating the main facade. The more discreet treatment of openings continues the residential fabric of the area. In order to lighten the volume and reduce its impact on the neighborhood, the top floors were covered with clear siding. The building’s exterior envelope has been designed to be high-performance, resulting in substantial energy savings and increased comfort for occupants.
