Cabin A by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectes

Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectes have completed Cabin A meant to accommodate groups of up to 12 people. Located 20 minutes from Le Massif ski resort, Quebec, Canada, this unusual cabin is the second tourist-oriented project designed by Bourgeois / Lechasseur for the region, after Dômes Charlevoix.

Looking for a source of inspiration, the team composed of architects and graphic artists turned to the International Code of Signals (ICS), long used in nautical communications. While the Alfa signal determined the building’s overall geometry, subtle references to naval architecture were introduced throughout. The cabin’s triangulated roof is a reminder of sails facing the wind whereas a large wood terrace evokes the upper deck of a ship with stunning views of the river. The use of wood paneling on the walls and ceiling of the shared living area further emphasize the analogy to naval architecture.
