Héneault & Gosselin Head Offices°

location: Montreal, Canada

client: Héneault & Gosselin inc.

° Project co-designed as Senior Partner of Lauzon Pelland (NOMADE)

The Challenge

The project is to consolidate all the office space and operations of the Montreal foundation experts in one location. The challenge was to achieve a simple and functional building while translating the brand purpose into a bold statement in the gritty industrial context.

The Response

An evocative 2-storey building featuring corner entrance and lantern-like glass tower. The signature effect is the “tectonic plaque” of the upper offices volume, displaying a fracture line effect with the lower level, thus embodying the company’s purpose as experts in foundations structure and underpinning.
