U House / Natalie Dionne Architecture

Situated on the outskirts of a residential Montreal neighbourhood, near a railway line, the U-HOUSE exists in an entirely urban context. However, the U shape takes advantage of the open central space, creating an oasis protected from the surrounding environment. The walls that frame the courtyard are finely crafted of articulated wood and glass panels which can be opened and closed. Weather permitting, the courtyard transforms itself into another room in the house.
