La Pointe | Reinterpretation of an A-Frame Cabin by Atelier L’abri

Located in Poisson Blanc Regional Park, Quebec, Canada, La Pointe is a reinterpretation of an A-frame cabin designed by Atelier L’abri in 2018. Measuring 37m² (398ft²), the tiny off-the-grid cabin sleeps up to four people.

La Pointe is a ready-to-camp micro-shelter designed for the Poisson Blanc Regional Park located north of Ottawa. With its triangular geometry, the shelter offers a reinterpretation of the legendary A-frame popularized in North America in the 1950s. It was important for the designers to create a simple, almost sculptural structure that would provide functional and nature-oriented spaces. The small, off-the-grid building, capable of hosting two to four guests, was built on site by L’Abri’s construction team.
