More than a library

More than a library

This project by Lemay converted a building with important heritage value for the community, ensuring integration with its surroundings. The new construction ties together building and landscape, fostering an approach that is in total harmony with nature. Montmagny residents quickly rallied around the new library and its clean and articulated architecture, which has made it a regional attraction.
