Pôle Tombolo

Bic National Park,
Bas-Saint-Laurent,  2018

The new Tombolo Pole at Bic National Park is located on the site of a former summer vacation camp. This camp was founded for the youth in 1947 by Father Louis-Georges Lamontagne who marked the region’s history and is still engraved in the collective memory. The former colony closed and abandoned in 2012 when it was given to SEPAQ in order to build a new services centre and family camping.

This project, developed in a design integrating the architect, engineer and SEPAQ park workers, integrated a new utility building, a kitchen shelter and exterior lobby, a commemorative space for the former camp chapel, rest areas, picnic and BBQ areas, campfire and meeting areas, storage for nautical equipment and a playground for small children. All the installations were designed to offer quality family time. The presence of the former camp and of the St-Laurent river were subtly alluded to in the selection and shape of the materials.
