Description

Innobec - Software Developer Offices - Villeray
Completion 2013 and 2015

This project is the second phase office expansion for a software developer that is outgrowing its current space on the ground and second floors of an office building. The expansion project proposed taking over the entire building to create space for new employees and to provide new break rooms, game and meeting rooms to create a better work environment. The central stair was extended from the basement to the roof. At the top a large skylight provides access to a partially covered roof terrace. The roof terrace is intended to provide a space for employees to eat and relax while enjoying the view of the neighbourhood and Mount Royal in the distance. Below, the stair leads to several large open spaces including an employee dining room, a kitchen, a cloakroom, a games room, bicycle storage and a conference room. On the new 3rd floor, offices and conference rooms have been designed with glass partitions to allow the greatest possible access to daylight in the centre of the floor plate. The spaces near the windows have adjustable dimensions, allowing them to be used as conference spaces or flexible team rooms depending upon the needs of the company.
