The Imaginary Attic

Borough of Verdun,
Montréal, in progress,  2022

As part of a larger pilot project aimed at creating a cultural district in Verdun, Mousse was mandated by the borough to improve Grenier Park, located at the intersection of Lasalle Boulevard and Wellington Street, the neighbourhood’s threshold. The mandate is to design a friendly and playful space dedicated to children and adolescents on the theme of the Practice of the Arts.

The narrative concept is that of the imaginary attic that carries stories of all kinds. The different playful and creative experiences proposed in this project are all inspired by this universe.

On one side of the layout, a wooden shelter is installed on a sizeable wood platform. There are tables and benches adapted to the ergonomics of adults and children and a small house that fires the imagination. Above the house is the attic, an elevated space where children can take refuge to play and observe their surroundings. Plants are planted to delimit the space and bring colour and life. On the other side of the layout, a play area proposes a space to manipulate and sculpt the sand and an area with slopes surrounding a trampoline.
