The Challenge

How to insert a 90-room hotel tower, a 96-car underground parking and 450-patron ballroom on a landlocked site less than 2500 square meters while preserving a large heritage mansion and Montreal architectural jewel from the Golden Square Mile?

The Response

The architectural answer to this planning puzzle was to design a set backed truncated tower shape would be fit within the sightlines of the mansion, rendering the tower virtually invisible from a pedestrian across the street. Also, when visible, the tower windows are rendered in an abstract geometric pattern inspired by the Victorian wallpaper pattern of the Mansion’s salon.
