Close to the Le Massif de Charlevoix ski range, on a mountain of Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, a municipality in the province of Quebec, are the new accommodations that the Canadian architectural practice of Olivier Bourgeois and Régis Lechasseur has designed for Dômes Charlevoix. The project explores the points of contact between ecology and luxury through three geodesic domes. These are part of the first phase of a sustainable tourism complex that will merge with the landscape. Each one sits on a light wooden platform that incorporates a Jacuzzi. Its prefabricated structures clad in gray PVC open with a south-facing window to offer spectacular views of the St. Lawrence River and optimize the entrance of natural light.
