A couple passionate about gastronomy and great lovers of Charlevoix dreamed of designing a contemporary residence in this exceptional natural setting, both to enjoy a pied-à-terre in this region, but also to create a high-end tourist home where families, friends, or colleagues could gather. Inspired by the breathtaking view of the river and the picturesque rural setting, and guided by the firm Architecture49 through all stages of design and construction, the owners succeeded in creating a home with a minimalist, sustainable and honest design, which honors the experience of the place in all its simplicity and beauty.

Charlevoix is known for the majesty of its views: the St. Lawrence River meets the sea, the mountains of the Hautes Gorges skirt fertile plains, under a sky that plays the role of a moving painting. The region, its terroir, and the people who live there receive each season many visitors seduced by its authenticity. The architecture of the region combines historical buildings and resolutely contemporary works. Le Littoral blends into this environment by deconstructing and reworking the silhouette of the region's farm buildings, making it a luxury tourist residence that's resolutely contemporary and discreetly inserted into its surroundings.

Purity and functionality as pillars of the project

To make the Littoral an ideal meeting place and resort, conducive to creating memorable moments for the people who stay there, Architecture49 has created a sleek and functional environment, full of discreetly integrated facilities. A swimming pool, sauna, fireplace, and spa contribute to the comfort and relaxation of its occupants. The kitchen, which occupies a major space upstairs, is equipped with a multitude of professional tools for amateur chefs and gastronomes so that they can take full advantage of the high agricultural and culinary center that is Charlevoix.

A neutral color palette (limited to black, white, and wood), a wooden structure, with finishes in noble materials, the use of off-center volumes, and function determining form, are trademarks of Architecture49. The desire of the designer and owners was to create a house from which would emanate a sense of comfort, peace, and calm so that people can feel the spaces contribute to their well-being. The building, which is minimalist and easy to understand and live in, leaves plenty of room for users to express themselves. They can thus better appropriate the space while connecting with their environment. This house is built for Charlevoix rather than a house built in Charlevoix.
