by ACDF Architecture

Following in the footsteps of their design for the first floor, ACDF opted for a careful intervention that preserves the Montreal-based building’s rich heritage.

Remnants of the existing shell offer a backdrop to the contemporary atmosphere of the office space. The architects uncovered remaining bricks and stones to expose the raw material, and created a dynamic contrast between old rough walls and new rectilinear geometry that highlights the space's qualities.
