GRADUATE IN ARCHITECTURE
Gabrielle joined the Blouin TardifArchitectes team in 2019 as an architecture intern while still studying. She completed her master’s degree in architecture the same year at the University of Montreal. Curious and proactive, she is stimulated by the programmatic diversity and scale of the projects tackled in the firm. In her interventions, she places the user experience and urban integration at the center of her concerns.
“The project on which I collaborated and which has special meaning for me is the Municipal Services Center of the Municipality of Saint-Louis. This project was my first experience at the firm and it is the first that I have seen evolve from the preliminary phases to the construction. The project takes place in a building of worship devoid of its functions and left without maintenance. The rehabilitation of this building was a stimulating challenge, both at the level of programmatic insertion and at the technical level. I appreciated the award-winning sustainable and sensitive approach when designing this project. In particular, the upgrading of the majority of the elements in place, the attention paid to universal accessibility in this existing context, as well as the use of durable and easy-to-maintain materials that meet the needs of current and future users while contributing to the richness of this project.”
