Collège Montmorency is the only college in the city of Laval, just north of Montreal. As it has nearly 8000 students and continues to grow, in 2018 Collège Montmorency began construction of a new D wing. The initial plan for a 2,600 square meter annex was quickly expanded to a 10,865 square meter, four story pavilion with a 26 million CAD budget. The new pavilion, named Guy-Rocher, opened its doors in the winter of 2019 and represents the college’s largest investment since its construction in 1976.
The centerpiece of the new pavilion is the large atrium that stretches from the basement and two floors up. The space is dominated by a modern concrete amphitheater. At its foot, four Nova C Benches in Bracket configurations bask in the natural light shining in abundance through the large glass curtainwall and the cathedral ceiling. The rib color of the benches matches the wood panels along the atrium walls and the furniture can easily be reconfigured to various configurations to suit the needs of the students enjoying a few minutes of rest between classes.
