Henri Cleinge converts a historic bank in an area of 12,000 square meters that accommodates a start-up technology, coffee to the self-employed and also to the public. This space is the fusion of ancient architecture with a more elaborate in one place.
Design Gallerist presents the Tech startup offices at historic bank in Montreal by Henri Cleinge.
The approach has the context of a heritage building with a layout divided to create a flow and possible interactions between permanent and temporary workers during the implementation of co-working in the technology community. Transparent and translucent borders between different spaces facilitate this interaction.
The compartments of the former bank were not removed, then being used as a natural partition between the cafe and conference rooms, which in turn created a separation between public spaces and the self-employed.
