Expansion and modernization of the Montreal Heart Institute
Composed of two buildings linked by a public atrium along the existing building on Bélanger Street, the Montreal Heart Institute expansion project includes two levels of underground parking, a new emergency room, ambulatory clinics, a training center, an auditorium, critical care units, administrative spaces, as well as a new main entrance allowing for a warmer and more functional reception worthy of the institution's reputation for excellence.
34 000 m² / 125 M$
2016 — 2021
A double-height glass atrium located in the western corner of the critical care bar —north block and predominant volume of the new extension— marks the new main entrance to the complex. This reception space is the heart of the institute and the point of convergence of the different programmatic elements.
The north block houses a training center with a 400 m² auditorium, a brand new ultra-modern emergency room, critical care units and an administrative floor. The west block houses the ambulatory clinics at the corner of Viau and Bélanger streets. The entire project is characterized by a contemporary, sober and durable architectural language and materiality.
