DesignLines: Relmar House by Luc Bouliane Features a Light-Filled Atrium

Relmar House has been featured in DesignLines Magazine!

From DesignLines Magazine:

“For an empty-nester couple, Luc Bouliane finds simple but effective ways to integrate features for aging in place without compromising on beauty […] The house is rectilinear but cranked – a box that has been twisted at the hands of a giant. “We’re con­tem­por­ary in terms of our design, but we don’t take the rigidity of minimalism to heart,” says the architect, who worked closely on the project with Erik Bornstein, the owners’ son and manager of the building firm Mazenga. […] Bouliane’s design flexibility enabled him to optimize space and light. A corner of the kitchen island is cut off to maximize floor space, and the southern wall of the west-facing balcony is set at an imperfect 95-degree angle to catch just a bit more of the late-day sun.” Read More

Designlines: Uncover Nine of Toronto’s Best Kept Secret Patios

Lebel & Bouliane's Brooklyn House was shortlisted as one of Toronto's Best Kept Secret Patios by Designlines Magazine!

From Designlines:

All in the Angles: When architect Luc Bouliane was tasked with updating a century home in Leslieville, he merged his white-washed cedar-and-aluminum-clad addition to the outdoor area by using the same material for the asymmetrical back patio. Surrounded by warm cedar fencing, hits of plant life, and comfy furniture from Freshand Hauser, it’s the perfect locale to ogle the edges of what Bouliane refers to as a “thing” – an angular nine-faced polyhedron that serves as an addition to the original brownstone.
