Montreal Airport Marriott Hotel & ADM Corporate Headquaters

The architecture for this addition to Montreal’s Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau International Airport facilities eloquently expresses the project’s three components: the Marriott Hotel, the Aéroports de Montréal’s corporate headquarters and the new transborder terminal. The complex reflects the guiding principles of the airport’s architectural vocabulary, expressing elegance, fluidity and effectiveness. Its architectural expression proposes variations in tectonics that clearly illustrate each of the building’s components.

Set down upon the new terminal, the hotel component, whose curtain-wall reveals the private character of its program, expresses the elegance of a contemporary residence. A covered footbridge links it to the international terminal.

At the building’s base, the transborder air terminal’s double-story level, spacious and luminous, penetrates the hotel’s public floor and lifts the building with a gesture imbued with lightness.

The ADM’s corporate headquarters rests atop the building. Its architecture, a beacon inspired by the headquarters’ programme, provides its interior spaces with omnipresent light and a panoramic view of all airport activities and, on the horizon, the city of Montreal. Its colonnade, delicate and dynamic, is its signature.
