From the architect. Montreal, January 27, 2012 – L'Arsenal du Fort de l'Île Sainte-Hélène, a former warehouse for ammunition and guns, was built between 1820 and 1824 and was converted into a military museum in 1956. The Stewart Museum has a large collection of over 30,000 objects and artifacts of Nouvelle France and the European influence in NorthAmerica. For this project, we revised the master plan of the site development and we did feasibility study which included a functional and technical program.

The museum's transformation program was developed to meet the following requirements:

- Grouping functions which were similar;

- Facilitate the circulation and improve the visitor’s experience;

- Improve climatic comfort;

- Improve accessibility for disabled people;

The project involves the installation of an elevator in the courtyard and an architectural staircase to improve universal accessibility and the circulation through the museum ‘s the three levels. The elevator is covered with mirrors to create the effect of a kaleidoscope which binds the new construction to it’s historical context.

The dia-grid is obviously not a structure here, just cladding pattern..... why facetting it? looks cheap.

ArchDaily features nice projects. But is obviously run by morons.

@brb001: Do not be so hard on them, they do a good job and are not necessarily paid (well I think).

Y Beaumont · February 08, 2012

Hi, can you please correct the tag Montrea for Montreal. And it's not in France. It's in Canada.

:-)

tyler wied · February 08, 2012

Montreal, France?! Really!? Either you have an intern, or no-one has a map.

Mitch · February 08, 2012

Montreal, France?

Patrick Morand · February 08, 2012

Another great project delivered by FABG, but Montréal is in Québec, Canada, not in France!
