also a lot being done in the internal company space with office design.
Arguably one of the most interesting articles this week, Fast Company wrote apiece on a jazzy new tech office design in Montreal. Essentially, a software
company by the name of 'Lightspeed' is turning an abandoned train station in
Montreal into a revamped office building. 'Constructed in 1898, the train
station was done up like a French chateau. But time wasn't kind to the building
and over the decades, it fell into disrepair (thanks, Great Depression). Today
it's the site of a $250-million mixed-use redevelopment project that seeks to
revive the abandoned structure.' According to the article, the redesign of this
location retained 'vestiges of the past' while also incorporating rigorous
renovations including scraping off layers of tar that coated the bricks. The
images of past and present are incredibly stark in contrast and really showcase
the unique design of this new office. Check out the article here.
