Sid Lee Architecture and Ædifica turned the parking area at Place des Arts into a Salon Urbain, a versatile new space ideal
for meeting up before or after a musical performance, a gallery visit or a conference. The Salon Urbain fully captures the
artistic appeal of the site, located at the St. Urbain entrance of the Place des Arts and next to the new concert hall.
“The Salon Urbain boasts a conveniently central location, but it really comes to life during events,” explains Martin Leblanc,
architect and partner at Sid Lee Architecture. “The space is a destination in itself and a welcoming prelude to the musical
and social experience it precedes.”

The bar is the pièce de resistance of the Salon Urbain, a hymn to art: a sound wave in physical form. It is the key element in
a mobile world where people come together, dance, listen… The colour red is omnipresent, associated with performing arts
and premiere nights, and becomes the symbol of a hip urban culture that beats to rhythm of music and the arts. The Salon
Urbain is a versatile space, equipped with the latest technology and perfect for any event. The goal of the Salon Urbain is to
keep alive the magical feeling that comes with attending a concert.

The Salon Urbain is must see destination that will attract a clientele all its own and that can used both day and night. All
senses will be awakened in this space, the ideal backdrop for a variety of special events. Any time of day, pre- and post-performance, timeless.
