Institut du Tourisme et d'Hôtelerie du Québec
|Address:||3535 rue St-Denis|
Montreal, QC, H2X 3P1
|District:||Plateau Mont Royal|
Originally a rather unattractive Brutalist building, the ITHQ was redesigned in 2005 by the architects of Lapointe Magne and Aedifica. The new "skin" has a dual role - it gives the building a more attractive "shell" and actually helps conserve heat (not a trivial use considering Montreal's climate).
Dining on Premises
Restaurant de l'Institut (Market Cuisine) (514) 282-5161: Since the ITHQ is also a culinary school, the student restaurant's presence on the ground floor (clearly visible from the street) is logical.
- The original (1970's) design of the ITHQ was "awarded" the Lemon award by the Société d'architecture de Montréal for one of the worst new buildings in the city
