Decelles building – HEC Montréal
The Decelles building at HEC MONTREAL is emblematic of the Brutalist architecture of the 1970s.
The austerity of the massive concrete façades with minimal openings has earned it the nickname “The Bunker.” The two floors of classrooms slated for redevelopment were actually completely windowless. The redesign work restored HEC Montreal’s characteristic dynamism to the renovated spaces. Bay windows create a brighter ambiance and showcase the institution, while a remodelling of interiors completely transforms the space.
