Playster offices

Designed by ACDF Architecture with strong colours, geometries and white vynil floors, the Playster’s offices in Montréal look much alike a lively, unconventional spaceship.

Playster is a young and fast-growing company that provides a global subscription-based entertainment service, with offices in New York and Los Angeles. ACDF Architecture designed its headquarters on Peel Street, downtown Montreal. To give their clients an environment suited to the company’s high energy and creativity, the architects transformed the space using a selection of bright colours, geometries and white reflecting surfaces.


The architects used the existing walls to create a variety of vibrant, new private spaces, thus saving resources and money. They proposed an chromatic pattern that reinvents the 1,670 sqm space. Reminiscent of the company’s logo, blocks of colour saturate the walls and carpets creating a strong visual impact and demarcate different zones in a fluid progression. The open-plan workspace design adapts to small-group work sessions as well as large collaborative and creative atmospheres. A white corridor balances the strong colourful areas and acts as a spine, connecting the meeting rooms. White vinyl panels in the corridor define several breakout areas where  employees can have a chat and rest from their busy schedules.
