Historic Montreal Bank Gets High Tech Transformation


In Montreal, Canada, an ornate former bank has been given a new lease on life as the headquarters for a tech start-up and cafe. Designed by Henri Cleingethe marble floor, custom brass details, and painted ceiling were all restored to life with painstaking detail as the new headquarters for Crew Collective.


Besides the tech startup, individuals are able to rent space in the cafe by the week or the month for short term projects. The architect specifically created a natural flow for this communal space, to allow for cross pollination between permanent office residents and short term tenants. There is also a cafe in the building, making it an appealing place to drop by and work for an afternoon.


Henri Cleinge said the challenges “originated from the client’s requirements – how to elaborate an architectural relationship and construct boundaries between the various program functions. The second challenge became a deeper questioning on how to approach design in the context of a heritage building”.

The conference rooms can be booked by the public, and the design matches the ornate bronze plated steel design of the ceiling of this 1926 historic building. Teller stands from the building’s former life provide a natural division between public cafe space and private offices.
