The challenge launched by the city of Montreal was to recycle the old orange line STM wagons.
As a response, we proposed a concept where we created a unique hotel. Each wagon was to be transformed in rooms that would’ve been design by a local artist. A historic tour was planned along the floors, by which we would’ve been telling the history of the metro over the years. The whole wagon layout is said to have been wrapped in a huge glass cube, leaving behind the sight of indoor activities. A restaurant and a bar on the roof, boutiques and other services on the ground for the use of the clients and the citizens. Nothing has been forgotten in the creation of this superb project.
An ambitious project who would’ve become a major symbol for the city of Montreal.
