Sid Lee Architecture unveils ‘WOW Suites’ at W Montréal

Sid Lee Architecture, in collaboration with owner Ivanhoé Cambridge and operator Hôtel W Montréal, recently completed the transformation of three Extreme WOW Suites at the W Montréal.

Located in the heart of Montreal’s Quartier International, in the historic Bank of Canada building, the W Montréal is a luxury hotel with a hip identity, sophisticated yet fun-loving, and always tuned in to the latest trends in design, fashion and music.WOW Suites, W Montreal, Sid Lee Architecture

The recent renovation project provided an opportunity to revitalize WOW Suites 1001, 1012 and 1013. The suites now boast museum-style décor inspired by Montreal’s cultural icons, featuring revisited artifacts that have been adapted to the hotel context. Together, the objects tell the story of a forward-thinking city that takes pride in its heritage.WOW Suites, W Montreal, Sid Lee Architecture

Suite 1001 is the most spacious of the three rooms, and a fine example of the concept: the dining area and Habitat bar borrow the deconstructed shapes of the Habitat 67 apartment complex; the central rug and bookcase evoke Villa-Maria metro station; the rug in the cinema corner glimmers with summer fireworks; the chandelier over the bed has a dense geometric structure reminiscent of the Biosphere; the natural-fur cushions on the bed pay tribute to the fur trade’s key role in the city’s history; and the artworks reflect the city’s eclectic, avant-garde art movements.WOW Suites, W Montreal, Sid Lee Architecture

The rooms were completely revamped to embody the W brand’s colourful philosophy. The space is multifunctional, modular and reconfigurable. All furniture is custom-designed to make it possible to completely free the space of furnishings. When that is done, the space becomes a large, 100% customizable room centred on a spectacular panoramic view of the city.WOW Suites, W Montreal, Sid Lee Architecture

Suite 1001 is a destination with many possible uses, from exclusive getaways to private events such as business meetings, product launches, parties or fashion shows.

The suite has a large circular screen and a projector to be used however guests wish. It also features a pantry and service entrance for catered events.
