At the meeting point of tradition and modernity
Featuring a modern and cutting-edge architectural design, Le Nuovo blends seamlessly into the Montreal landscape, with its combination of boldness and subtlety. The location played a key role in designing Le Nuovo. The building is located at a vibrant meeting point, where Villeray meets Little Italy, on the corner of Clark and Jean-Talon, two of Montreal’s main arteries. Inspired by this urban junction, the designers imagined the outside of the building and found the materials that would reflect its character: a blend of dark brick and architectural stone blocks.
Light grey almost white architectural blocks were chosen for the Jean-Talon facade to capture the classic and timeless feel of Little Italy. Dark brick was chosen to cover the Clark side. Its raw look is reminiscent of the former industrial area that played a key role in the neighbourhood’s history.
