The multifunctional Salon Urbain by Sid Lee Architecture and Ædifica

What is now a colorful and sophisticated Salon Urbain was originally just a parking area at Place des Arts, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. A recent collaboration between Sid Lee Architecture and Ædifica turned that empty space into a versatile structure that can be used for meeting either before or after a musical performance, as a gallery or conference space.

Salon Urbain covers a surface of 5,950 square feet and it was built in 2012. It’s a versatile and multifunctional space with an adaptable interior design that reflects the artistic appeal of the Place des Arts and the concert hall. It’s like an extension of these spaces and it now seems like an indispensable addition. The focal point of the interior décor is the bar. It has a delicate silhouette and a modern allure and it plays a central role in all the events that take place there.

The main color used for the interior design is red. It’s a strong and vibrant color and it’s also versatile. Salon Urbain has been equipped with the latest technology and attracts guests regardless of the time of day. Inside this space it always feels like it’s bright outside and time has no value. It’s an artistic space that keeps alive the feeling of being at a concert or exhibition. It’s the place to go to either before or after attending an event there.{found on archdaily}.
