A LEED Silver certified real estate development located in the heart of the entertainment district, the Carré Saint-Laurent houses Montreal’s memory center, 8 floors of offices as well as the famous Central, a vast food court recreating the festive atmosphere and international flavors of street food and food trucks.
The nocturnal signature accentuates the resolutely modern architectural contrasts and blends perfectly with the existing buildings. It was developed in the form of a luminous identity integrated into the architecture while distinguishing itself from the very colorful and animated environment of this constantly evolving neighborhood.
The light enhances an ‘architectural fresco’ that integrates the salvaged pieces of the historic facades of Saint-Laurent Boulevard.
The marquee, a reminder of the famous cabarets of the time, which extends over three facades, attracts users and guides them to the various entrances. Its sparkling animation reflects the joyful atmosphere of the Central which occupies the first floor of the building.
