EN_ A BREATH OF FRESH AIR: By transforming the former
Imperial Tobacco Factory into a residential complex, the
area's density and environmental quality are improved. The
Lofts target young Montrealers supportive of sustainable
practices such as green roofs, car-sharing, rainwater recycling
and energy efficiency. The factory's asphalt surfaces, once
urban heat islands, are replaced by cooling, landscaped
courtyards which incorporate on-site water retention,
reusing existing reservoirs for watering of site plantings.
The design concept for the three landscaped courtyards
references the form of the cigarette, and reimagines it as
a breath of fresh air. Custom screens announce and define
private entrances, distinguishing them from public walkways
and garden spaces. Rooftops are greened and transformed
into terraces open to all residents. With minimum budget,
the Lofts have revived an environment, integrating a new
residential paradigm and celebrating a vibrant past.
1+2 THE MONOLITHIC 1960S EXTERIOR ENVELOPE WAS REMOVED 3+4 THE
LOFTS HOLD 750 RESIDENTIAL UNITS AND 5 ROOF TERRACES CONNECTED
BY WALKWAYS RECALLING THE OLD FACTORY'S CONVEYORS.
