Google’s Balconville Upgrades


MobileSyrup has the scoop on the Google upgrades of the Montreal offices on McGill College. And apart from the obvious Balconville references here are my other faves:

In the Reception:

  • Chairs in the waiting area were made from skateboards, recuperated by the Quebec artist, Janie Belcourt
  • The table of the waiting area was made from a steel plate recuperated from the former reception desk of GOOGLE MONTREAL office by the same artist

In the coffee room:

  • The big wooden tables were made from former paths of bowling alleys by the Montreal Artists of l’Atelier 3/4 fort.
  • Near the games room, you will have recognized both autographed seats that we got back from the Montreal’s old Forum.
