Our approach to this delicate operation was essentially to create a lobby that is better articulated with the rooms in the conference centre. A marriage between two styles, the historic showcase and contemporary style of the lobby and waiting area, is achieved by overlaying classic-style elements on a contemporary background, for example, the series of columns in carved woodwork installed at intervals that frame and the stark surfaces of pale leather wall coverings.

The leather wall harks back to the padded doors of the first law firms in Old Montreal.
