Centre Henri-Julien

Ahuntsic-Cartierville, Montreal, 2007

The Ahuntsic-Cartierville Borough wanted to acquire a multifunctional leisure and recreation centre that would contribute significantly to social, cultural and urban development and become a focus of identity for their citizens. This centre of cultural dissemination would facilitate the integration of newcomers and intercultural exchanges by offering a large variety of events that intermingled with flexibility and dynamism. The mandate was composed of three sections: the planning of the centre and its components (library, exhibition room and auditorium); the analysis of building possibilities within the Henri-JulienPark; as well as a concept outlining its development potential.
