For the very first time, the GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN is travelling to the National Capital to present the first of two awards evenings recognizing the excellence of a creative industry.
Join us on Saturday, September 18 to discover the international cohort of major winners in architecture, landscape, construction and real estate.
A perfect opportunity to rediscover institutions in the architectural landscape of Quebec City: the Voltigeurs de Québec Armoury and the Hôtel Château Laurier Québec, proud partners of the GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN 2021.
AN EXCEPTIONAL LOCATION
805 Av. Wilfrid-Laurier, Québec, QC G1R 2L3
Whether you are organizing a huge banquet, a wedding or a business meeting, the various styles of rooms at the Voltigeurs de Québec Armoury will meet your needs.
The A49 / DFS / STGM consortium was given the mandate to design and rebuild the Voltigeurs de Québec Armoury, following the latter’s re in 2008.
The building having retained most of its architectural integrity, thus as the character-defining elements that led to its designation as a national historic site of Canada, the reconstruction of the Armoury was aimed at rehabilitating it as a multifunctional building. The consortium is therefore committed to preserving, stabilizing and ensuring the sustainability of all these important moments of the Armoury, in a coherent and dynamic whole that enhances the cultural value of the place for future generations.
DISCOVERING A CLASSIC (AGAIN)
Hôtel Château Laurier Québec
1220 Pl. George-V Ouest, Quebec City, Québec G1R 5B8
A four-star establishment located in the heart of Old Québec, the Hôtel Château Laurier Québec offers 271 rooms and unparallelled lodging service.
A stone’s throw from the Grande Allée and the Plains of Abraham, the Hôtel Château Laurier Québec is the ideal location for your events. Its 17,000 square feet of rooms and lounges can accommodate from 5 to 500 people. Thanks to its event caterer, Le George V, the Hôtel Château Laurier Québec stands out on all fronts! The hotel offers its Jardin des Quatre-Saisons, a courtyard with outdoor spas, and an indoor saltwater swimming pool.
Simply updated by Etienne Bernier Architecture, the woodwork and moldings in the hall add warmth to the spaces. The superimposition of volumes highlighted by the lighting and woodwork and the balance between classic and contemporary create richness and refinement without opulence.
Winner of the GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN 2020 in hotel design, the Château Laurier Québec is a family business managed since 1975 by the Girard family. It is the first francoresponsible hotel in the Americas, an independent four-star hotel that offers superior comfort and renowned multilingual service.
