MOCO LOCO is 10 years on the web this year, to mark the occasion this week we're talking to designers from where we began, our home town of Montreal. We asked _naturehumaine [architecture+design] which work initially got them the most attention.

"This little project built on St-Hubert street in Montreal a few years back, got us unexpected positive responses from people in the field." says _naturehumaine.


"The first gesture of this house extension was to lower the new dining room to the level of the exterior terrace, and to link it to the kitchen through a vast open space."


"Suspended atop the dining room, a translucent reading cube emerges from the master bedroom. Meanwhile, a light well ensures that direct sunlight reaches the dining room all day long."


"Playing in a subversive manner with the numerous constraints, the architects yielded a unique project."


"Simple and modest, the St-Hubert residence offers nonetheless a rich spatial experience with generous and luminous spaces."


"The materials chosen were left in their natural state, as raw as possible, to create an authentic ambiance."
