An ambitious renovation of the former Bank of Montreal expands and repurposes it as a stylish reception and meeting space for today’s parliamentarians.


 
A contemporary annex to the renovated former Bank of Montreal is a sophisticated addition to the Confederation Boulevard streetscape.


 
The former banking hall has been completely restored while incorporating new HVAC, lighting, audio-visual systems and other infrastructure allowing it to be used as a conference and reception venue.


 
The underlying geometrical order and proportions of the restored bank building provided inspiration for the addition.


 
Canted light cubes give three-dimensionality to the ceiling of the multipurpose room.


 
A stair in the new atrium wraps around a richly veined deep red slab of Cape Breton marble.


 
View of the grand stair leading to the banking hall. The rehabilitated coffered ceilings conceal acoustic controls, fire sprinklers, and return air vents.


 
The fully glazed atrium connects the historic banking hall to a contemporary addition. Conceived as a second stone box, the addition includes a granite base topped by limestone above, set out in a modular pattern with bronze inlaid joints.
