This mandate consisted of designing an office building on the edge of the Lachine Canal in Montreal; a site rich in history. The volumetry of the building was designed in three bodies carefully aligned with neighboring buildings and highlighting the visual axes of St. Patrick Street to the canal. Two brick-clad buildings attach the building to its industrial context by their materiality and the proportion of openings. These two bodies carry a third aerial volume which spans the canal like a bridge. This "inhabited bridge", resolutely contemporary, is covered with zinc and glass panels.
