"A designer’s identity needs to look different. I used the distinct frames of my glasses as both icon and logo to evoke myself. New branding stationery starts with radical splinter-free wooden business cards. Add to this several choices of colors and papers… the result is a harmony that reflects my individuality."

Sylvain Toulouse is a passionate designer who has gained international recognition for his designs and logos. Now making Montreal his home, he has worked previously at leading design studios and ad agencies in Ottawa. Sylvain’s extensive skills have also enabled him to act as art director for several design and advertising projects.

White Cave House, Kanazawa, Japan by Takuro Yamamoto Architects

White Cave House is a massive lump engraved by a series of voids interconnected in the shape of a kinked tube. The connection of voids – we call it Cave – is the theme of this house. Internal rooms are designed to enjoy the minimum views of Cave characterized by its whiteness. At the same time, this concept is also the practical solution to realize a courtyard house in Kanazawa city known for heavy snow in Japan.

The client’s original request was a white minimally-designed house with many external spaces, such as a large snow-proof approach to the entrance, a roofed garage for multiple cars, a terrace facing to the sky, and a courtyard. Though a roofed entrance and a garage are desirable for snowy place, it takes so many floor areas away from the internal rooms for the family, while the space and the budget is limited. In addition, courtyard style itself is not suitable to the snowy country because courtyards would be easily buried under snow.
