Atelier BOOM-TOWN took advantage of the redevelopment of Loft Duvernay located in an industrial building near the Atwater Market in Montreal, Quebec, to make a second transformation of this former factory, converted into a dwelling project in the 1980s.
The chalet du Bois Flotté (the Driftwood Chalet) is located on the gently sloping terraces overlooking Cap-à-l’Aigle and the river. In the distance, one can see the Malbaie River and the slow movement of its tides.
The De La Canardière residence was designed to enable a sister and brother to meet as a family on special occasions and to unwind in contact with nature. This project sprouted along the shores of a lake up in the Laurentians in a wooded area with a significantly consistent slope.
The Chalet Potton consists of the blending of four cubic areas around a central space through which the site can be crossed from the arrival level to the lowest level leading to the lake. The cedar and spruce wood coverings distinguish each of the areas from the composition.
