Eco-glamping delight exploring Quebec’s beauty

Dômes Charlevoix - Bourgeois/Lechasseur, Quebec, Canada

In Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, near Quebec City, the architects at Bourgeois/Lechasseur have created Dômes Charlevoix, a project that offers a unique and luxurious eco-accommodation experience throughout the four seasons.

Described as a fusion of glamour and camping, the domes of Charlevoix provide an unparalleled glamping experience. Nestled delicately in the landscape, three geodesic domes offer breathtaking views of the St. Lawrence River below. Accessible via a path winding through the trees, each dome is situated on the picturesque and verdant mountainside of Petite-Rivière-Saint-François.

The exterior of the domes features wooden patios that contrast with the concrete floors inside, reminiscent of the textures found in the surrounding mountains. The smooth, tactile atmosphere of the domes is further enhanced by the dark gray walls. The southern-facing fenestrated portion not only offers stunning river views but also maximizes solar gain. The heat accumulated in the concrete slab during the day is redistributed within the dome in the evening, creating a comfortable environment.

Inside each dome, a black service area is located in the center. On one side of this black volume, a concealed kitchen equipped with a sink, oven, stove, kitchen hood, and fridge is tucked away. On the other side, there is a spacious bed, cleverly integrated with the storage space provided by the volume. The living room area boasts a fireplace and magnificent views of the St. Lawrence River. Above the volume, a second large bed offers even more incredible vistas.

The gray walls allow natural light to flood the space through the windows, creating an open and airy feel. The bathroom, with its sink, toilet, and Italian shower, is compact yet functional. Outside, a spa overlooks the mountains, allowing guests to immerse themselves in both the bubbling water and the stunning scenery, providing a much-needed escape from city life.

According to the studio, Dômes Charlevoix is a true invitation to experience luxury in the mountains while harmonizing with nature and its elements.
