Strøm Spa Vieux-Québec – Award – Project of the year GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN 2020
Strøm Spa Vieux-Québec – Award – Centre de bien-être, d’entraînement et récréatif
After receiving a Prix d’excellence en architecture from OAQ, a Hotel & Property Awards and an A+ Award from Architizer, the Strøm Spa Vieux-Québec receives recognition for a fourth time by industry experts.
Right from the exploratory and development phase of the project, the first source of inspiration was the St. Lawrence River, the majesty and quiet strength that emanates from it The layout of the installations is inspired by the footprint of the old harbour wharves that once formed the banks at the shorefront, creating volumes alternating between full and empty. This fragmentation allows the presentation of different thermal zones, each developed to offer unique sensory universes, linked together to form a complete experiential journey.
Residence Inn Calgary by Marriott – Award – Établissement d’hébergement
Calgary’s Residence Inn by Marriott, the largest hotel of the brand in North America, has 390 guestrooms spread over a 35-storey tower built above a building that previously housed the Alberta Boot Company, a cowboy boot factory still in operation today. The whole design of the hotel was inspired by the factory, from boot-stitching patterns in the guest rooms to old advertisements in the lobby.
