Maggy Apollon is a highly regarded architect in Montreal’s architectural community. As the former Vice-President of the Ordre des Architectes du Quebec, she has sat on the jury for architectural competitions and has spoken at various conferences. She also serves on the board of various community groups in Montreal. Apollon has been practicing architecture since 1993, under the name Maggy Apollon Architect, specializing in lifestyle spaces for early childhood centers and retirement homes.

In 2008, she founded a company called Bodywash Care Inc, which provides prefabricated spaces of temporary rest and relaxation for frequent travelers called Edo Traveler Suites. Apollon partnered with Montreal firm _naturehumaine to collaborate on the design of the suites. Whether travelers are stuck in the airport because of delays or waiting for a connecting flight in their long haul across a continent, Apollon’s spaces provide comfort at what can be an uncomfortable time. The 7 foot by 10 foot spaces  can be used for sleeping, working or refreshing to the tune of ambiant music. The suites act as mini hotels with 6 to 12 small rooms which can be rented for 30 minutes, an hour or a night.
