Text description provided by the architects.
GSoft’s DNA is made up of skateboarding. From the company’s start to today, it still rings true. And of course, we love that. Some of the things which arose when thinking about skateboarding and skate culture as a whole were the freedom to explore endless possibilities and the strong, passionate community which surrounds it.
The design of the office space is done in a way which encourages exploration. There are a multiplicity of areas to discover and explore in GSoft’s new home.
While we couldn’t provide truly endless possibilities, we’ve done our best to create unique ways to move around the office. The whole space is designed to be rideable and there are numerous ways to get from point A to point B.
Perhaps you’ll find a hidden passage while traveling through the space. You’ll have to explore!Of course, what would skateboarding be without friends? What would GSoft be without their community? Nestled in the historic industrial neighbourhood of Pointe-Saint Charles, GSoft is proud to represent. Instead of leading right into the main office space, the main entrance leads to the main communal hall, open to the public for talks and presentations and even has a show kitchen for the talented chefs of Montreal.
With GSoft’s new office in Montreal, we are trying to convey the joy that comes from exploration and the close bonds that are built within a tight knit community.
Oh yeah, they’ve also got a half pipe. No big deal.CREDITSPhotography: Claude-Simon Langlois.
