Located on a mountain slope in Petite Rivière Saint François, next to the Massif de Charlevoix, Quebec, the three domes are perfectly integrated to the landscape and almost float atop the trees embracing the changeable colours of Canadian seasons.
The domes can be easily accessed via a path through the trees from a common parking lot at the entrance. Each floating dome is set on a wooden patio and houses a spa overlooking the natural setting. The south-facing windowed area offers a breathtaking view of the St. Lawrence River and maximizes exposure to natural light.
The radiant concrete floor adds a touch of comfort and helps maintain a more uniform temperature inside the domes. Thew grey canvas and a fireplace create a warm and cozy atmosphere to cuddle in. A black streamlined service area is set in the centre: In the volume are concealed a kitchen, the main bed and a bathroom with Italian shower. A boat staircase leads to a second bed above the service area.
