Project year
Construction duration
10 weeks

As a result of an architectural competition launched in January 2013, the organization of the offices of the Ordre des architects du Québec no longer met its growing and constantly evolving needs. To remedy this, the board of directors called upon the expertise of L. McComber with three objectives: rethinking the reception area, optimizing and reorganizing the work surfaces and improving the acoustics of the building.

The custom-designed furniture, made by local artisans, cleverly combines steel, felt and wood. Its modular design allows it to be arranged according to the specific needs of each team. A total of fifteen additional positions are added on the floor. The use of felt privacy screens and large cotton curtains reduces reverberation in open areas. At the entrance, the sinuous, user-friendly geometry of the large reception counter provides an active waiting area for visitors. The AC room is enlarged and soundproofed with a long glass wall flanked by climbing plants. Its very large solid walnut table can accommodate about 20 people. The design takes up with character the original palette signed Intégral Jean-Beaudoin. The new geometry with rounded shapes contrasts with the clean lines of the original layout. The Ordre des architects du Québec is proud to have participated in one of its major missions: quality in architecture!
