Heenan Blaikie LLP offices

Montreal, Canada, 2010-11-14 -

The offices of Heenan Blaikie LLP in Toronto, Canada, won the Shaw Contract Group’s 2010 “Design Is…” international award for innovative new spaces category, beating out other 250 entries from 15 countries and designed by the Montreal firm id+s Design Solutions.


HEENAN BLAIKIE
For the Montreal-based design firm, winning the mandate to design the offices of Heenan Blaikie in Toronto against 7 large Toronto firms was a feat in itself. 

Heenan Blaikie, one of the most important law firms in Canada, was the first tenant to move, in September 2009, into the new Bay Adelaide Center, a Leed-certified building, taking 125,000 square feet on 5 floors. 

Minimalistic finishes and the sprinkling of whimsical elements transform the space into a smart, modern and very approachable business environment without evoking the luxury and pretentiousness law firms are so careful not to convey. 

Introducing color, a specific request by the client, by strategically placed “colored” furniture such as the metal credenzas by USM in each conference room, showcases these objects in a museum-like quality. Graphic walls throughout the space create elements of surprise and humour. 

This introduction of color in a simplistic manner preserves the neutral palette of finishes and materials that also showcases Heenan Blaikie's very important art collection. 

Acoustics, a sensitive issue to lawyers, was dealt with thermally sealed exterior glass sliding doors used for the boardrooms. Designed to seal you from outdoor elements, they serve well as a seal for sound transference. Open or closed, these doors offer transparency, aesthetics and functionality. 

“When I wake-up in the morning, I enjoy going to work”. A week after the big move, they were approached by a partner of the firm, who was not implicated in the design process. His words encompass the mission and objectives they set out to implement.
