"La Cuisine": Rockland Center's Culinary Experience

Montréal, Canada

Architecture49 + Humà Design+Architecture

Humà Design + Architecture and Architecture49 are renewing Rockland Center’s culinary experience.


Montréal, Canada, 2019-03-18 -

Humà Design + Architecture and Architecture49 firms are proud to unveil Rockland Center’s new food court, “La Cuisine”. The result of a narrow collaboration between those two renowned offices, the group worked with the client to redefine the culinary experience focusing on the gastronomic pleasures.


The Rockland Center owns a rich and vibrant history. Its original concept, by the architect Victor Prus, places it, since of the ’60s, as an emblematic destination of the Greater Montreal, both by its luxurious walkways and its sophisticated events.

Respecting this heritage, a meticulous and subtle concept was perfected: only the diversity of food was kept from the traditional food court. Following the strong idea of a large skylight, “La Cuisine” wants to offer privileged moments. The design and the architecture have been studied to support the idea of quiet luxury.

A major opening towards Acadie Boulevard assures flooding of natural lighting throughout the indoor space, which was previously only artificially lit. The numerous vegetal interior inserts complement the interior as a whole and transform the site into a grand garden and a wide dining room.


The food court offers many sub-spaces featuring different atmospheres. Some value the refined details and maximum brightness, others felted and comfortable alcoves, the latter features copper and greenery. All these combined spaces succeed in creating harmony through the use of noble materials such as marble, wood, copper and leather while exposing sumptuous lighting custom-designed for the project.


Varied spaces 
 
A Central Island

The central island was conceived and designed as the active heart of “La Cuisine” in a dining-room spirit. It is bordered with high counters to play with the “watching and being watched” idea. To this end, garden-inspired furniture with wooden seats was developed, and then sublimed with a vegetal insert, bringing intimacy to the place. 


The Chef’s Kitchen

Created to host prestigious chefs and culinary events, The Chef’s Kitchen is equipped with a large and open countertop. This allows the integration of knowledge sharing into the tasting experience in a thoughtful and distinctive space.

 

The Food Trucks
The original concept of “Food Trucks” islands allows the temporary installation of various restaurants for a period of three months in order to taste street foods in an atypical interior food court scope. The foodies can renew their experience at each visit!


The Terrace 
To support the garden idea, a large terrace continues this intimate garden concept. An exterior area was created with fireplaces that takes into perspective the Montreal lifestyle and its four seasons.


And many more!
From the Chefs’ kitchen to the children’s spaces, not forgetting a stage that can accommodate musical groups, to a central island where guests can eat at the bar and enjoy the open kitchen experience; the new concept of the food court has been completely redesigned to support meetings and receive various events.
