Monde (Presentation Centre) by Cecconi Simone
2011 - 2012, Silver A' Interior Space and Exhibition Design Award Winner
The presentation centre draws inspiration from the architecture of the planned condominium by Moshe Safdie and from adjacencies to Lake Ontario and a newly-installed neighbourhood park, re-producing a park-like setting indoors.
The interior design for the 390 m² Monde presentation centre in Toronto, Canada, engenders a complex layering of surface planes and textures, accentuating extended sight lines and privileged vistas. Views are activated by an evocative and highly-tactile materiality echoing the exterior context. Stone, concrete, distressed wood and, most conspicuously, plantings are applied at amplified scale. “Nature,” in the form of artificial green walls, is re-contextualized as interior architecture. Vegetation leads the eye through the gallery, opening it up, softening it and re-defining its edges.
