Le Sault-au-Récollet : du village au quartier ‒ Au coeur de l’histoire d’Ahuntsic (The Sault-au-Récollet: from the village to the district – At the heart of Ahuntsic history),
a permanent exhibition that interprets and highlights the history of a northern district of Montreal. Based on the contents provided by the Cité historia team, and within a rather modest envelope, Merlicht designed and delivered quality and attractive elements: the museum lobby, a permanent exhibition as well as the furniture for the temporary exhibitions and the Mémoire vivante (Living Memory) projection room. The visual signature with its vibrant colors—inspired by the colors of the apples wich used to be pressed in this old house—is resolutely contemporary but respects and integrates perfectly the architecture of the Maison du pressoir, a classified heritage building.
