The Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) continues to garner international recognition, most recently receiving numerous honors that highlight our work both inside and out on the monumental healthcare project.
Winning this year’s INSIDE World Festival of Interiors Award in the Health and Education category, the project is recognized as the best interior healthcare space in the world from 2017. The judges noted that main circulation spaces and public areas provide easy orientation and “the transition into the treatment areas is well supported by the architectural concept.” The jury also lauded the hospital’s precise choreography of views out to the city as “remarkable.”
The CHUM has also received a 2017 Best of Canada Award, presented by Canadian Interiors, in the Institutional category. Jurors recognized the incorporation of the site’s existing historic artifacts, seamless interior wayfinding strategies, and the integration of public art throughout — the largest public art program since Expo ’67.
Most recently, the project received two honors by Interior Design Magazine’s Best of Year awards competition. The CHUM won in the Outdoor category for the hospital’s inclusion of multiple elevated roof gardens viewable from patient rooms and in the Shining Moment category for the passerelle, an elevated bridge above Montreal’s Sanguinet Street that also doubles as an illuminated public art installation.
