The Challenge

To deliver an iconic yet unassuming building to house the offices, store and workshop for the legacy Montreal keymaker within a tight budget and a 700 square meter footprint.

The Response




In true Brandscaping form, the disarmingly simple scheme proposes a visual take on the core purpose of its owner with a building outline as floating graphic "key" cut-out, expressed in 3d shape. The 2-storey red “urban-berg” is a playful response to its corner site and embodies the DNA of the locale with bright color scheme neighboring fire station and containers storage yard.
