The shed housed us each day for the first decade of the company and will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
It is with a twinge of regret that the Tofubox team had to leave its faithful shed in September 2013. An unusual workspace, this multifunctional shed is part and parcel of the company’s history since its establishment in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region. At the time, our President, Philippe, was a freelancer and used the space as an office and art workshop. One could even catch him stroking his guitar while reading his emails or waiting for Photoshop to start-up!
The company then began to expand with a broader and more diverse client base. Serious and motivated, Philippe had less time for his guitar but always made sure to connect art and technology in his graphic creations. Literally the box of Tofubox, this space was more than just a shed. It was a pleasant workspace where staff was received with a delicious coffee every morning; it was a warm and welcoming space for all: clients, hares and groundhogs (no joke). In September, with the arrival of Mariella as artistic director, the shed, became too small for four team members.
Hence, just like Apple and Nike which had humble beginnings in a garage, Tofubox’s expansion led to its move into a new workspace in September 2013. The shed, housed us each day for the first decade of the company and will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
2013 - 2017
The office on Harwood at the corner of Chemin de la Petite-Rivière, was our first leap into an awesome professional workspace.
With a growing client base and an expanding team, it was time for the company to leave the President’s backyard and set-up in a new “box”. Tofubox connected with Sylvain Desrochers, a construction entrepreneur that is well known in the region. It was a real sign of destiny since this new space was at the intersection of residential, industrial and commercial zones in the region and located in a zone under full economic expansion which reflected Tofubox’s own desire for growth and its multidisciplinary character.
But above all, it was a professional workspace that remained welcoming all the while better adapted to the team and its clients thanks to a large conference room. Moreover, Tofubox remained rooted in the region and accessible since its news offices were right off highway 30 between the Vaudreuil and Dorion sectors.
