« Designed by Jean Guy Chabauty and Anne Sophie Goneau, the brief was to design the new office space of BLUE Communications, an interactive agency.
Founded in 1998, the Montreal based company specialises in web development, branding, content creation, e-commerce, social media, mobile apps and databases. Their corporate space is located in the south-western downtown part of Montreal (Griffintown) on the 8th floor of the LEED building Carrefour d’Innovation INGO (now owned by École de Technologie Supérieure), which was previously the brewing tower of the famous Dow brewery.
The mandate was to section different work zone to create a stimulating environment, favourable to creation and encourage communication between each user. The open space allows each user to benefit the spatiality of each area, the natural light from high fenestration and the panoramic view on Montreal. A white universe was opted with all its splendour for a space that brings serenity and lightness for each user. The experience starts from the entrance, transition via a compress space where the blue light from the logo, impregnate us the identity of the agency, BLUE. On the wall, a shark gives the impression of floating in a basin of creativity; a metaphor to express that idea is beyond the border. The intentions of design were a continuity of LEED philosophy of the building throughout the project. »
