Lemay has joined lighting solutions provider Lumenpulse Group and real estate developer Montoni for their latest realization: a brand-new Lumenpulse head office that will combine branding and architecture to embody the history, values and culture of the company.

Driven by LemayLAB, Lemay’s creativity incubator, the project will benefit from a spectacular view on the St. Lawrence River as well as an urban environment for over 600 Lumenpulse employees. The project showcases Lemay’s expertise in architectural branding, which aims to create a unique and personalized built environment by pushing ideas beyond initial expectations.

“We used a methodology that allowed our multidisciplinary team to understand and translate Lumenpulse’s mission and values,” said Jean-François Gagnon, associate architect and design director at Lemay. “The architectural solution mirrors the brand and its history, which are at the heart of the project. We’ve designed the space and its ambiance as a sequence of exhibits that invites people to discover the company’s keys to success: innovation, collaboration, communication and transparency.”

Covering over 14,000 m2, the headquarters’ factory, office spaces and an immersive experience centre will together form a knowledge transfer hub and prime convergence area designed around the theme of a prism. Inspired by the company culture, the architectural approach is based on a commitment to minimize the company’s ecological footprint and bring functions together. The alignment along the river maximizes outdoor views from the offices, while the positioning of the experience centre, in the form of a prism at the heart of the project, completes the volumes’ composition. The result is a strong and daring statement in support of Lumenpulse’s image.

Lumenpulse, Montoni and Lemay launched the construction with a ground-breaking ceremony on November 15 at the Longueuil, Quebec, site across the river from Montreal. The building should be completed by summer 2017.
