Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes Wins “Best of Canada Design” Award for Ericsson’s New Montreal Office

Montréal, Canada

Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes

  A place designed for research and innovation, the new Montreal campus of multinational Ericsson is inspired by a desire to provide a stimulating work environment.

Montréal, Canada, 2017-12-05 - 

Once again this year, MENKÈS SHOONER DAGENAIS LETOURNEUX Architectes has won an award of excellence at the Best of Canada Design Competition presented by Canadian Interiors magazine. Presented during the IIDEX Canada National Design and Architecture Exposition, held annually in Toronto, the prestigious awards recognize Canada’s best design projects. Ericsson Canada’s new corporate campus and R&D centre was cited for a design that embodies a corporate culture focused on openness and collaboration, and for workspaces that foster innovation and creativity.

 

The new complex comprises a group of buildings whose primary volumes – two office buildings with five and three floors respectively – are connected by a lobby containing the campus’s common areas. The two office towers share the same concentric configuration: an organic, lively core blends into more structured quiet spaces closer to the exterior walls. The floor plans are designed to give employees open, versatile workspaces that encourage collaboration.

 

In the heart of the central zone, an atrium with a monumental staircase allows natural light to reach the ground floor. This traffic zone and informal meeting place is surrounded by concentric programming rings. A series of rest areas and state-of-the-art meeting rooms surround this first activity zone. A second zone includes small meeting rooms and telephone booths. Lastly, the quietest zone is located on the perimeter. It includes workstations allowing every employee to benefit from natural light.

 

To maximize natural light and spatial flexibility, the ground floor is laid out along two circulation axes that cross the complex. This level is devoted mainly to conference rooms, training rooms and common areas, as well as a library, fitness room and daycare centre.

 

The Daycare Centre

Since the company’s establishment in Montreal, employees have been able to benefit from daycare services at work. It was important to continue to provide that service at the new corporate campus, with additional capacity. The new daycare, designed to host 80 children, is located on the ground floor in a remote area and in close proximity with the landscape.

 

“Home Away from Home” is the concept guiding the daycare centre’s design. From the moment they enter, children are greeted by enormous hanging, illuminated spheres resembling colourful suns. The circulation path naturally leads one to the heart of the project, a central space in the shape of a little house evoking a familiar and intimate place for the child, a reassuring spatial landmark in a world built to his scale. The little house has small, square windows that kids can use to peek out at neighbouring children’s classrooms. A series of classrooms along the exterior wall maximizes natural light and provides captivating views of the grounds and greenery outside. Spaces, volumes, furniture, materials and colours all come together to stir and feed the imagination, helping the children communicate, learn and flourish.
