The whimsical Allez Up rock climbing facility in Montreal, Canada was built in an old sugary refinery. This playful workout space features a front desk designed to look like a small rock formation and tall white walls with colorful grips for climbers to hold on to. Smith Vigeant Architects are behind this fun design, which actually draws inspiration from the sugary refinery it was built in. The architects involved tried to make these rock walls resemble large piles of sugar to pay homage to the building’s previous function.

The Allez Up rock climbing facility offers active individuals in Montreal a fun alternative to weight workouts and treadmills. This delightful adult play place features an imaginative design, and flecks of color which make it look almost like an abstract work of art.
