Head Office, Montreal, 2000
Located on the third floor of a building on Saint-Catherine Street, this project includes the design of the exhibition hall of the furniture manufacturer Steelcase on the one side, and offices of the supplier Trium on the other. From the chaos (the street and its overflowing energy) and the realm of possibilities (the showroom of the furniture system and its multiple arrangement options) a rational and elegant solution arose (the head office, a specific and organised variation). A convincing illustration of the act of creation, the result is exemplary. This work environment is characterised by its strong design, functionality, intelligent tectonic details and elegant layouts. The space today is occupied, almost unchanged, by an excellent office… of architects.
