Headquarters of Schlüter Systems Inc.

Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Canada

DCYSA Architecture & Design

Recipient of the 3rd Jury Prize in the Industrial Building – $5M or more category at the 2011 Awards of Excellence in Architecture presented by the Ordre des Architectes du Québec


Montreal, Canada, 2011-03-15 - Sustainability and design are interwoven in this industrial structure. Technology is celebrated and treated as an integral aesthetic experience. A medium-sized project in surface area, the building explodes with innovation and reads as a rigorous exercise in energy efficiency and contemporary language. The client is Schlüter Systems, a company that manufactures accessories and membrane products centered on the tiling industry, and thrives on experimentation and perfection.

The building is the Canadian headquarters and serves as an office and training centre of the company’s products. The two programs are architecturally distinct and connected by a delicate glass box, with a bold folded plane in the foreground marking the entrance. The combination of elements – towers, glass, folded plinth - reads as a harmonious exchange of lightness and depth, and points to the expertise of the company. The industrial complex is quiet and distinguished, sitting in a large wooded site in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue.

The combination of a dedicated team of specialists and an integrated process lead to a successful, LEED Gold certified building. Moving beyond basic principles of sustainability, the project manages to bring innovation to water management, energy use, and material selection. Ultimately the building not only celebrates the company it was built for, it promises a long existence of pleasant use and ease of maintenance. It stands as a model for the possibilities of a successful business, and points to the future of environmentally intelligent corporate design directions.
