Café Constance - coffee and ballet

This interior is full of fancy accents and unusual details. No wonder, as it is located in the Wilder Building in downtown Montreal, which also houses Les Grands Ballets Canadiens. Completed in February 2022, the cafe pays tribute to Constance Pathy, a generous patron of the arts and former leader of Les Grands Ballets.

Atelier Zébulon Perron studio is responsible for this boutique interior. The space located in the building's hall has been designed primarily as a meeting place for ballet performers, as well as a local cafe for the building's employees and the artists themselves.

“We took a theatrical approach to create a kind of performance,” explains Zébulon Perron, founder and chief designer. "The idea was to create something that seems completely out of place and that captivates the imagination in a strange and miraculous way."

The high ceilings have been reduced to a more intimate and human scale by using an awning suspended above the bar. Bevelled glass, mirrors and lighting resemble theatrical dressing rooms, and the canopy completes the eccentric whole.

 

One of the designers' greatest inspirations was Bar Luce, a Milanese cafe located at the Fondazione Prada art center.

“Café Constance combines elegance, grace and movement through its tribute to art,” explains Perron. "Altogether, all elements of the project work together in an eclectic atmosphere with a unique character," he adds.
