Aéroports de Montréal announced the opening of a new common-use VIP lounge at Montréal-Trudeau airport. Located in the international jetty, after the pre-boarding security screening checkpoints, this new 110 capacity lounge offers travellers awaiting their flights spacious surroundings and an array of exclusive services. A sleek modern concept within a beautifully lit space, the lounge offers an exceptional view of the vast sky-lit international customs area. The intimate, luxurious design marries shades of cognac, browns and white within a relatively monochromatic relaxing space. The play of light, volumes and textures composed of natural materials such as wood, leather and metal define the atmosphere of the space. The lounge offers 375 square meters pleasantly withdrawn for the hustle and bustle of the rest of the finger.

The project architects, Jodoin Lamarre Pratte et associés architectes, were responsible for the design of the lounge as well as the preparation of construction documents and site supervision; all within a tight budget and limited construction schedule.  The actual construction was completed within a sector of the airport that was operational, therefore subject to strict logistical constraints. The furniture was designed and manufactures by Quebecois designers : Éditorial, Espace Côté Sud, Périphère
