Chibougamau-Chapais Airport

By : EVOQ + ARTCAD architects in consortium / Discipline: Architecture

Categories: Public Building / Institutional Building : Gold Certification

The Chibougamau-Chapais airport is the gateway to the Eeyou Istchee James Bay region. It services a large territory that includes the communities of Chibougamau, Chapais and Oujé-Bougoumou. Faced with growing passenger traffic, a new terminal building was deemed necessary to meet the increasing demand. The new terminal was designed according to the latest standards to provide a seamless passenger experience and to express the aspirations and culture of the communities it services.

Cour de l’École des Ursulines / School playground

By: EVOQ Landscape Architecture / Discipline: Landscape & Territories

Categories: Landscape Architecture / Landscape Architecture – Cultural & Institutional Project: Gold Certification

Perched on the steep promontory of Cap Diamant, Old Québec is located within the fortifications of the old city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the heart of the fortifications, the Ursuline Monastery National Historic Site of Canada is one of the rare conventual complexes that bears witness to the establishment of the French colony in Canada in the 17th century. Its built and landscaped components are testimony to the different phases of evolution since the arrival of the missionary nuns in 1639.

Résidence La Sportive / Residence

By: EVOQ Landscape Architecture / Discipline: Landscape & Territories

Categories: Landscaping / Facade Landscaping: Gold Certification

This residence at Lac Saint-Joseph is in a green setting where one can admire from surprise to surprise the work that has been accomplished by the landscape architect and his collaborators. The designer was careful to give the guidelines for the implementation of the house to enhance the natural landscape and outdoor spaces. His approach is based primarily on a careful assessment of the views to be preserved and hidden to optimize the near and distant perspectives of the residence.

CPE La Maison des Amis / Daycare Centre

By: EVOQ Landscape Architecture / Discipline: Landscape & Territories

Categories: Landscaping / Courtyard: Silver Certification

The playground of the CPE La Maison des Amis is articulated around three types of carefully circumscribed spaces. The first includes soft activities such as drawing and painting, reading and rest. The second is a more dynamic space that includes sliding in both the summer and winter, climbing, a bike or scooter course, swings, and balance games. The last one contains more noisy spaces to practice playing ball or splashing with the water game. On the other side of the courtyard, a specially designed enclosed area with a cushioned floor and a miniature handrail allows infants to take their first steps with ease.

Promenade Jean-Brillant

By: EVOQ Landscape Architecture / Discipline: Landscape & Territories

Categories: Landscape Architecture / Pedestrian Street / Shared Street: Silver Certification

The arrival of the Montreal Blue Line subway in 1988 generated a significant amount of pedestrian traffic on Jean-Brillant Street, linking the CDN subway to the University of Montreal. The narrowness of the sidewalk creates active transportation issues for pedestrians who are forced to keep up with slower pedestrians. To remedy this situation, the Côte-des-Neiges Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough wished to phase out the vehicular section along Jean-Brillant Park and extend this park to the second adjacent vehicular section and join the Côte-des-Neiges commercial artery.

By: EVOQ Landscape Architecture / Discipline: Landscape & Territories

Categories: Landscaping / Prestige Landscaping: Silver Certification

Offering breathtaking views of Lac-Beauport, La Déclive refers to the steep slopes where it is located. With a generous budget, the landscape architects were able to design spaces that combine luxury and attention to detail without compromise.

Located north of Quebec City, the Lac Delage municipal park, adjacent to the manor house of the same name, has an interesting layout.
