A mixture of art, from culinary to graphic, converges in the new project created by Sid Lee Architecture, a new dining concept developed by New York firm bps, called ê.a.t. “être avec too”.
W Montreal‘s restaurant celebrates the city’s artistic atmosphere by incorporating murals, paintings, sculptures, and art events.
Sid Lee Architecture partnered with MASSIVart for the artistic direction. Their design started out with blank walls that were transformed into murals showcasing the work of 12 Montreal artists such as Stikki Peaches, What is Adam, Jason Cantoro, and Jean Labourdette.
“We strive to create unique consumer experiences and, to us, that doesn’t necessarily mean putting architecture at the forefront. For ê.a.t., we chose to showcase art. We imagined a minimalist design, like a white canvas, and let the artists create a collaborative work of art,” explains Jean Pelland, Architect and Partner at Sid Lee Architecture.
