Lemay is proud to welcome Jean-Sébastien Bourdages as a new Associate and Design Director of Lemay.
M. Bourdages brings to the team nearly fifteen years of experience in architecture and interior design, mostly in retail and institutional. In 2006, he joined B+H architects in Asia, becoming a principal associate in 2010. Seven years later, he was asked by B+H to open a new office in Hong Kong, where he became design director for Asia.
With an ongoing concern for sustainability, Jean-Sébastien participated in several award-winning projects on the international scene: flagship stores, schools, health centres, airports, offices, etc... He contributed to the development of several emerging markets from Macau to Dubaï, via Singapore. His main accomplishments include notable projects such as the flagship stores of Sephora and Paul&Shark, respectively located on the famous Nanjing Road in Shanghai and on Canton Road in Hong Kong, as well as the Ordos airport in Inner Mongolia and the Sandhill Plaza tower in Shanghai.
A firm advocate of integrated design practice, Jean-Sébastien joins the multidisciplinary team of Lemay to contribute his international expertise in retail. Collaborating directly with clients and directing design teams, he will also contribute to the firm’s international business development.
