Multidisciplinary firm Hatem+D has collaborated with Coarchitecture in the design of the first floors of the new Caisse Desjardins de Sainte-Foy. Remaining true to the Desjardins brands, the design incorporates green into all signage alongside wide open spaces, wood and a neutral colour palette.
The waiting areas for customer service offer plenty of natural light to create an inviting atmosphere. The private office spaces are separated from the hallways through large bay windows to let natural light deep into the space.
The concept of transparency was used throughout the interior to accentuate a communicative environment for clients, as well as a harmonious workspace for employees.
The transparency was nuanced with light-coloured adhesive film to provide a certain degree of intimacy.
The furniture selected for clients were comfortable and featured minimalist lines—all while adding to the transparency and openness of the areas. In addition, films for visual projections were affixed to the walls to enhance the customer experience. Apart from these mural projections, the offices included black and white photographs of symbolic landmarks in Sainte-Foy; these pictures were selected to increase clients’ sense of belonging to the Caisse Desjardins de Sainte-Foy.
