bourgeois / lechasseur architects has completed dômes charlevoix, three geodesic dome structures in the forest of petite-rivière-saint-françois, near quebec, designed to serve as all season, eco-luxury accommodations. part of a larger tourist project, each dome sits on a separate wooden patio that overlooks the mountainous landscape, and is complete with a hot tub and outdoor terrace.

the canadian studio has designed the domes with a south-facing windowed area that offers breathtaking views of the st. lawrence river and maximizes exposure to natural light. the interior is wrapped in grey canvas and finished with a radiant concrete floor, which adds a touch of comfort and helps maintain a more uniform temperature inside the domes. in the center, a black streamlined service area houses the kitchen, the main bed, and a bathroom with shower, while on top of it lays a second bed that can be accessed via a wooden, boat staircase.
