The Montreal office of Architecture49 launches new website: a49montreal.com
Montreal, October 20th, 2015 – The Montreal office of Architecture49 now has its own, local website, at www.a49montreal.com. The site focuses on both past and present projects and invites users to rediscover its outstanding projects and to see the extent of its experience. “We are very proud of this site; it showcases our achievements and eloquently demonstrates the dynamic creativity of our Montreal office,” says Bruno Verenini, senior architect with the firm and Managing Principal.
In 2014, six firms joined their complementary strengths and specializations to form a single pan-Canadian entity, named Architecture49. This new entity combines the experience and reputation of the Arcop firm with that of AE Consultants, North 46, PBK, Smith Carter and WHW Architects. Now with a total of 13 offices and 285 employees from coast to coast, the firm has over 60 years of experience in architectural design and has completed major projects both in Canada and internationally.
With a staff of 50 architects and technologists, the Montreal office of Architecture49 is distinguished by its long experience in the management of large-scale projects and its ability to solve complex program requirements, including rehabilitation and the reconstruction of prestigious buildings.
A little history
In 1955, six architects with strong personalities and varied backgrounds decided to found Affleck, Desbarats, Dimakopoulos, Lebensold, Michaud and Sise. The firm took the name of Arcop in the 70s, an acronym of Architects in Co-Partnership. Throughout its history, the firm has had a great influence on Quebec and Canadian architecture. The firm was responsible for opening the doors to contemporary architecture with a universal character. Their values such as collaboration, multiculturalism, creativity and their desire to practice architecture responsibly continue to lead the agency forward.
