SHAPING THE CITY AROUND THE CORNER AND AROUND THE WORLD. Part of the Montréal architectural scene since 1961, our team of professionals has earned critical acclaim for its many large-scale projects and competitions. Our contribution to the Montréal skyline is noteworthy as we have signed projects such as McGill College, Scotia and BNP Towers, and Complexe Guy-Favreau. We have been a key player in the carrying out and completion of the Québec National Library, the Canadian Space Agency and the McGill University Schulich School of Music, the later standing out internationally as a landmark in Music and Sound Technologies.
IGNITING INNOVATION. Recognized as leaders in our field, we stay on top of architectural trends offering innovative design and new technological practices to all our clients while maintaining the highest-quality standards throughout all project phases. We believe that Research and Development can spark our creativity in designing inventive solutions for all kinds of projects–cultural, academic, commercial and residential–under any contractual situation. Our innovative vision has been praised by critics and rewarded on many occasions.
DEFINING SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE. Our constant search for innovation has led us up the path of sustainable architecture. One of our latest accomplishments, the Lassonde Pavilions of the École Polytechnique, has been certified LEED Gold, a first of its kind in Canada. We are also very proud to be involved in Research and Development for Équiterre (Sustainable Development building), which will lead to the creation of one of the world’s most ecological buildings.
WORKING TOGETHER, SUCCEEDING TOGETHER. Teamwork has fuelled our longevity. Behind our track record is the creative mix of talented and seasoned professionals who excel at putting their heads together for the benefit of our clients and the community.
