Our workshop is located at the mountain's footstep, in Outremont's neighbourhood of Montréal, Canada. Part untamed mountain, part urban park, Le Mont-Royal is Montreal's most recognizable landmark and a natural one at that. The park is situated in the centre of the island and a focal point for the city's history and imagination. The "mountain" was once part of a sacred landscape for Indigenous people, predating European settlement by hundreds of years. Named by Jacques Cartier in 1535 and adorned with a crucifix in 1643, its presence continues to enthrall and unite us.
Frederick Law Olmsted
Responsible for designing countless public parks including, Central Park in NYC and Montreal's beloved Mount Royal Park, Frederick Law Olmsted's legacy as a social critic, naturalist and activist in the early conservation movement serves as fitting inspiration for our company's own multiplicity of concerns.
