GSoft (now Workleap)

There are many things that set GSoft apart. That’s evident as soon as you step through the doors. A set of passions run through the company like strands of DNA. Skateboarding is one of those. And its inseparable from their culture. We loved them instantly.

They say their software solutions help you work differently. We wanted to help them do the same. LB created spaces that encourage the freedom to explore endlessly. A varied and unexpected office landscape acts as the perfect indoor park where those two hallmarks of inspiration - exploration and freedom - abound.

Design Insight - GHall

The main office entrance leads to the central communal hall which is also open to the public for talks and presentations. There is a show kitchen that is open to all staff and is also used by local chefs for pop-up events.

Design Insight - Ride it!

70,000 sqft of office space is vast! And it required a solution to move easily from one end to another. So whether on foot, scooter, hoverboard, bicycle and – obviously – skateboard, the office is entirely “rideable”.

A "pump run" is a classic skate park addition to the path system.

Focus rooms.

Sometimes extended periods of intense focus are what gets the job done. Sometimes team meet ups are the thing that stimulates the last leg of a creative project. These rooms are perfect for both.

GSoft is proud of their roots in the Pointe-Saint-Charles, Montreal. The meeting rooms of the GHall give subtle nods to some of their favourite spots in the neighbourhood.
