The architect's philosophy
“The source of inspiration is really two-fold. In one case it was the city itself so it was a relationship with the mountain, the views… The other inspiration was the mixed use of the site, the fact that there was going to be housing for all kinds of people in the project. Architecture has a fundamental relationship with the human body. As bodies, we inhabit space, we touch space, we have a visceral experience. The Humaniti project absolutely does that. So there’s one very flat building, one medium scale building, and then this one very powerful vertical structure, and as a human you understand that relationship with your body.”

To design a plurivalent space where the human experience is both the foundation and the components. Live. Work. Socialize. Breathe. Evolve.
Humaniti is Montreal’s first “smart vertical community,” a fully connected environment where rich and multi-sensory human experiences abound – everywhere, at all times, and at all altitudes.
An architectural concept that’s bold and distinctive – the whole project is actually h-shaped – Humaniti is designed to promote the well-being of those who live in it, the dialogue between them, and the space they inhabit. A lifestyle inspired by the diversity of human interests, unique in Montreal.
Humaniti is a unique, organic place to live, work, train, entertain and socialize, a wellness environment where exploring human experience is the essence of luxury.
