For their brand-new head office in Quebec City, Morency wanted a concept stronger than the one that been done in Montréal.
This time, the space is spread out over two floors to separate each area more distinctly. With the gypsum drop ceiling revealing the mechanical engineering of the open ceiling, the reception has an industrial look allowing the room to go beyond the formal framework of law firms.
The contrast obtained from the white and the exotic wood spread over selected areas allows to highlight the architectural details such as the wall hiding the cloakroom, the doors, or the framing separating the board room. For the rest, the meaning of the concept is to make the place livelier, with the emphasis on the exterior.
The floor above has a more traditional layout consisting of closed offices with access to natural lighting. The general coloring allows to keep the desired industrial feel found at the reception by once again using concrete-related texture and patterns, particularly with the carpet.
As for the cafeteria, located in the center of the space, the character is completely different. We continued with the idea of the open ceiling, but used wood and mood lighting to have a warmer ambiance. As a darker room, it prompts discussions and becomes very popular after office hours.
