THQ - Work at play

Montreal, Canada

id+s Design Solutions


Montreal, Canada, 2012-01-30 - Montreal design firm id+s Design Solutions has won the Grands Prix du Design award 2011 for Office Design excellence across Quebec ( for 20,000 square feet and over) , for the offices of THQ, an American developer and publisher of video games located at 250 St-Antoine West, Montreal, Quebec. Id+s Design has also won this year for the executive offices of Astral Media for the category of Office Design category 5,000 sq. ft. to 20,000 sq. ft.

THQ, a multi-national video games company, opened their largest development studio in Montreal in 2010, occupying 57,000 sq. ft. on 2 floors in a historic building: the former headquarters and printing press of the Montréal Gazette newspaper.

This massive studio with a 400–person capacity includes all sorts of disciplines that serve as THQ’s creative engine. The client’s objective was to maximize the number of people in a collaborative workplace setting and social zones.

The large floor plates were divided into 2 distinctive zones: a darker atmosphere was designated for the artists, a brighter outdoor setting in honeycomb-shaped workstations and wooden “skate park” platforms, for the other disciplines.

Over-sized metal poles, feed the electrical and communication cabling, and create an abstraction of trees or lampposts. Connecting these 2 zones is a giant-sized white tunnel incorporating social gathering spaces and offices.

Complimentary rooms took on a theme of their own; the lunchroom turns into an outdoor rest stop, the screening room exposes its theatrical side and conference room tables transform themselves into ping-pong tables.

The space emulates the very nature of the organization, each zone plays out as series of screen shots underscoring the culture of the multi-media industry, work at play.
