St. Catherine Hotel and Market Design
Site: Montreal, Canada St Catherine Street
Partner: Zhitao Chen
The problem at hand was to design and develop a scheme in which a hotel and market must be built within the confided site spaces of an empty lot. In an effort to revitalize the urban crawl of the city itself, my partner and I focused the use of the timber material into modular pod-like rooms and incorporated the systems into the hotel for a more personalized and intriguing experience. The hotel was designed with intent to blend with the market scene below and mash the lines between urban movement and more secluded living within the hotel.
