Firm LocationMontreal, Canada
CompanyLemay
Lead ArchitectPatricia Lussier

Blending structure and landscape, these belvederes, footbridges and paths preserve and showcase a wide diversity of natural environments. These range from wetlands to a former limestone quarry. A whimsical signature shapes custom furniture and walkways, complementing atypical viewpoints and routes. Ecosystems invite discovery while guiding visitors away from sensitive areas. Materials, shapes, textures and colours harmonize with the changing seasons. The team’s thorough grasp of each site’s ecology yields a thoughtful relationship between each built component, the user and the space.
