Part of a vertical community located at the crossroads of the International district, the Quartier des spectacles and Old Montreal, Humaniti hotel is a 4.5-star venue over 11 floors. Inside the hotel, two concurrent design themes are at work: the bold, geometric accents inspired by the sharp architecture of Humaniti, and the softer, tranquil emphasis on the concept of “humanity". The lobby's chandelier, twisted in the sinuous shape of a DNA strand, which complements the high ceilings, the geometric floors, and striking ceiling pattern, along with the gold linear partition convey the tension between sharpness and delicacy. The same holistic approach characterizes the guestrooms. Their color palette consists primarily of rich yellows and deep teals. This fosters a rich balance between the happiness and spontaneity of yellow, and the tranquility, and peaceful optimism of teal. The geometric patterns found in the guest rooms, seen both in the carpet and bathroom tile, underscore the overall architecture of Humaniti. These elements provide a vibrant contrast to softer design elements such as the artwork, inspired by mother nature, and he human-like pair of sculptures.
