Conceived by local studio ACDF Architecture and occupying the entire sixth floor of an octagonal tower not far from the city’s Trudeau International Airport, the 1,189-square-metre-design — featuring bold bursts of colour and a striking mix of materials — accommodates not only the site’s challenging geometries, but the growing organization as well.

To remedy the awkward shape, the firm came up with a simple yet effective strategy: Transform the centre of the space into a circular common area, with the outer ring of workspaces (including open desking, private offices, conference spaces and breakout rooms) orbiting it. “The layout,” says architect and studio partner Joan Renaud, “provides a functional balance of flow and concentration that is conducive to the FlightHub culture.”
