Designers draw inspiration from Japanese style to loosen up 'stiff' Montreal
from The Globe and Mail
How do you carve out a radical career in Montreal? Emulate the Japanese, apparently. Perhaps that's unfair. Stéphane Rasselet, principal of the Montreal architecture studio Naturehumaine, has cultivated a singular style since launching his practice with partner Marc-André Plasse (now with Snohetta in New York) 11 years ago. His clean, graphic, residential design — characterized by looming windows, juxtaposed materials and oddly angled footprints squeezed into tight plots — pushes the envelope for functional, bare-bones modernism.
