Pavilions luxuriating between riversides and a centennial woodland’s edge
Nestled between the banks of the Rivière-des-Mille-Îles and the fairways and greens of North America’s oldest French-speaking private golf club, Laval-sur-le-Lac is a prestigious living space designed for natural harmony.
With a minimalist architectural language that recalls mid-century modernity, this condominium complex is composed of four distinctive 6-storey structures with as many as 28 housing units each, crowned by penthouses on their top two levels. The majority of the units are walk-through to better appreciate the beauty of the site, where the river and the woods are blended together from morning to night. To respect the centennial trees surrounding the narrow site, the pavilions were set in one row, sharing a single pathway and connected via underground parking.
One of the most distinctive residential projects in its region, Laval-sur-le-Lac is built around an arrangement of cantilevered terraces with floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows to enjoy exclusive estate-style vistas of the nearby golf course, riversides and woodland edges. Residents and visitors can not only luxuriate in these views, but also in amenities that range from a heated indoor infinity pool, tennis courts and state-of-the-art gym to an art studio, landscaped grounds with a firepit terrace, and a lounge area of pure white with zinc accents that fade into the sky for mingling over glasses of wine from an adjacent cellar.
Set above floors shaded with white, the darker zinc cladding on its top floors help give the impression of a modest height, making the four buildings humble spectators to the site’s greenery. Laval-sur-le-Lac integrates high-quality interiors into a housing design that is ergonomic, functional and aesthetically pleasing with well-being in all of its facets.
