Philosophy

Not just pretty pictures in a magazine.

In essence, we believe architecture is a powerful immersive medium that has the capacity to influence our mental state and regulate our interactions with the world. We want to dig to the core of the human experience and offer spaces that positively affects our daily experience.

Approach

Large or small, affordable or lavish, each project has the capacity to be extraordinary.

Every project has a unique potential embedded within its particular context. We attempt to uncover that potential and maximize it. We decipher the desires and needs of the clients.

Services

Be curious and eager, the possibilities are endless, the world is so large and astonishing.

We are specialists in creating built environments. We like to think outside the box and apply our skills to a wide array of projects, small and large. If you want something creative, unusual and fantastic, we’re in !

Philosophy

Not just pretty pictures in a magazine.

In essence, we believe architecture is a powerful immersive medium that has the capacity to influence our mental state and regulate our interactions with the world. Architecture forms the framework that carefully balances the ecosystem that operates at the scale of the city, the house, and the human being. We want to dig to the core of the human experience and offer spaces that positively affects our daily experience.

Approach

Large or small, affordable or lavish, each project has the capacity to be extraordinary.

Every project has a unique potential embedded within its particular context. We attempt to uncover that potential and maximize it. We decipher the desires and needs of the clients, decode building regulations, compute budgets and areas, scrutinize over sunlight, views, and movement. We translate and synthetize it all into shapes, sequences, materials, and persona.  Our delicate understanding of effective living spaces makes us strive for sensitive and balanced designs.

Services

Be curious and eager, the possibilities are endless, the world is so large and astonishing.

We are specialists in creating built environments. We like to think outside the box and apply our skills to a wide array of projects, small and large. Over the years, we have created numerous houses, office spaces, restaurants, and museums. We have worked for Cistercian monks, for entrepreneurs launching innovative concepts, for funeral homes etc. We would like to imagine and build your future project. If you want something creative, unusual and fantastic, we’re in !

After working on major projects in offices in Paris, Stéphane returned to Montreal to gain local experience at Dan Hanganu architects, The Arcop Group, and Lapointe Magne et associés. His experience comprised largely of the conception and realization of large scale rehabilitation of existing buildings such as l’institut d’hôtellerie du Quebec (ITHQ) and the ‘Théatre Espace Libre’. In 2004, Stéphane joined forces with Marc-André Plasse to found _naturehumaine architects. Within the first two years of the practice, they had been finalists in two major competitions : The Cistercian Abbey in Oka, and the theater in Dolbeau Quebec. Stéphane became the principal partner in 2013.
