Monette BarakettMontréal, Québec, Canada
Client Monette Barakett sought Ædifica’s expertise for the research and development of a new and inspiring workplace. The hundred-year old law firm had occupied the same space for more than 50 years and was looking for a new work environment better suited to current needs. This led to a fresh new brand for Monette Barakett and a move to modern offices at 4 Place Ville-Marie. The bright and airy flow of the new spaces matches the choice of noble materials such as wood, marble and steel—a perfect blend for the bustling firm. The focal point is a lobby entrance that is a study in both simplicity and volume. Revealed in every angle is the essence of the profession, i.e. the code of law. A central corridor that opens the way to the offices is transformed into a stunning gallery where fine works of art are on proud display.
