Warner Brother Games turned to Ædifica to design the 7th floor of 888 de Maisonneuve Boulevard East in Montreal. The client wanted to expand its workspace areas dedicated to video game development and production. A staircase and two-storey central atrium connect the adjacent floor, which is already occupied by the client. The design team explored the chiaroscuro duality of the superhero—the muse behind the new, customized workspace that plays with translucence, contrast and volume. The result is a creative and inviting area that is at once functional and scalable, and blends with the lower floors. The 7th floor collaborative work area also houses training rooms and a lounge adjacent to the spacious terrace on the building’s top floor. Sound and lighting strategies were also implemented and adapted to the needs and tasks of the staff.
