la SHED architecture. The firm was established when architect associates Sébastien Parent, Yannick Laurin, Renée Mailhot, all united by a passion for architecture, design and Montreal, decided to team up to form La SHED. The studio is dedicated to a new type of architectural relationship, where to call an architect would scarcely be stranger than hiring a accountant – a relationship where conceiving your own living space would neither be a luxury nor would it be utopic.

Upon completion of its second project, la Maison Demers, la SHED was overwhelmed with critical success and has since been highlighted in a number of specialized medias and has received a variety of design and architecture awards. Notably, the firm is the recipient of the 2016 Emergent Architectural Practice Award given by the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), the Canada Council for the Arts 2018 Ronald-J.-Thom Award for Early Design Achievement, and three Excellence in Architecture Awards granted by the Quebec Order of Architects (2015, 2017, 2019). Even though the team now has thirteen members, all decisions are made as they were on the first day – they are “submitted to the board” around the same large table.
