Licenses and Inspections Service Building of the City of Montreal
The firm won its first commercial competition in 1972 with the construction of the Licenses and Inspections Service Building of the City of Montreal. The proposed project is a complex where each function, visually expressed by a volume and a particular architectural treatment, is part of an overall unit. The whole has the character of a fortress dominated by masses in brick and a fine curvature in frontage. Its warm color blends with that of its neighboring building, the former Viger train station.
