Project Site : Cultural District in Montreal

Montreal, Ontario, Canada

In Collaboration with Sophie (Chaeyun) Lee

This hotel and market hall is located in Montreal, Canada where it is surrounded by art and cultural districts of Montreal. This project focuses on the material timber and how it could be structurally and aesthetically used to express the design. Through the hotel and market hall, the project strived to portray the same language as the urban context and create a space within the city that connects the adjacent promenades and preserve the adjacent green spaces. The ground floor exhibits the mixture of hotel and market with three light wells as visual buffers that separate as well as link these two spaces together. The movement of people are purposefully orchestrated by differently shaped light wells that respond to the two green spaces adjacent to the site and by the two core spaces that enclose the two different spaces, hotel and market. Upper floors of the building consist of public hotel spaces such as fitness center, recreation center, meeting/ event rooms, restaurant, bars and etc. followed by hotel rooms starting on the 4th floor which allows clear views to the city above the surrounding buildings. The single-loaded corridors also contain view lounges that allow views down to the ground floor through light wells and to the other side of the city. The light wells on the ground floor can be occupied if desired, but they mostly serve as a continuation of green spaces as well as surrounding atmosphere of the city. Market stalls follow a linear organization for clear and easy movement.
