SoupeSoup is a franchised restaurant located in Montreal, Canada, serving soups with fresh and high quality ingredients. The client wanted a space that expressed a recognizable brand identity, highlighting the quality of the food.
Located in an old typical brick and wood warehouse, the 325 square meters interior reorganization is inspired by the spirit of Old Montreal as the architect favored the original building character. Spatiality, natural light and raw materials are showcased; tables, counters, built-in furniture and lighting are used as minimal objects to organize the space.
The contemporary aspect of the intervention is coupled to the original architecture with material choices and details. The large fir wood pieces are horizontally placed to function as a service counter, dialoging with the existing wood column grid. The lighting layout is inserted between this grid. The transparency and position of the steel furniture contribute to the overall sensation of the space.
