The 275 Armand-Frappier, in Laval, is the former headquarters of the Canadian flagship Biochem Pharma. Following the acquisition of the latter by Shire Pharmaceuticals in 2012, there was a change of vocation for the building that had been designed for this unique user. Now owned by the American real estate fund Alexandria Real Estate, this beautiful building surrounded by woodland now hosts several different tenants.

Thus, the large central kitchen of employees of Biochem Pharma was no longer really useful. Lib. was given the mandate to define the complete design of this new space with a mandate to make it a common place for all users of the building that could attract new tenants. This approximately 2,750 square feet indoor space and approximately 1,000 square feet outdoor terrace facing the woodland has become a multi-purpose room. Allowing people to come and have fun in the playroom, eat their lunch on the many tables, make small informal meetings and even hold larger gatherings, like cocktail parties, this room has become an important selling point to help CBRE, the owner’s broker, find new occupants.
