    In a 1920s hillside upside-down house — where the living area is below the entry level — walking downstairs to get to the living room wasn’t the only aspect that was awkward.

    When you arrived at the living floor you were unceremoniously dumped into a tight vestibule measuring just six feet by four feet (1.8m by 1.2m) with three three-foot-wide (90cm-wide) doorways providing access into each space.

    When architect Michel Jaspers discovered this full city block, which had been left vacant for decades and fallen into disrepair, he conceived to transform it into what the Espace Jacqmotte is today: probably the first large-scale mixed-use complex in the heart of the city. The aim was to provide a mix of functions, thereby fulfilling the needs of various different occupants and visitors. (Published 2013.0109)

    Most American suburban homes have more walls than people want. There are two types of walls in most homes: those that carry weight (bearing walls) and those that don't (nonbearing walls).

    Removing walls that carry weight means that you have to have beams and columns to carry that load down through the home to the ground. Walls that act only as curtains can simply be pulled back and removed. (Published 2013.0109)
