Open space work areas shared with two other organizations foster better communication. Now, a relaxing space with café looks allows for a festive mood characteristic of the music scene. This area is convertible into a reception hall for special events.

The new offices now include a private gym with adjacent showers that encourage employee physical health. A completely equiped recording studio is available to SOCAN members. Its wooden surface and irregular angles create a contrast with the work stations it faces. It is a symbol of burgeoning creative spirit.
