Awards, distinctions, and honours
Parc de la Chute-Montmorency, a recognized and acclaimed site that’s truly one of a kind.
Cecobois Awards of Excellence -Montmorency Falls Experience
This exquisitely crafted experiential pathway located at the foot of Montmorency Falls is remarkable in many ways, particularly in terms of its integration with its environment. The minimalist and contemporary design skillfully plays with the material (wood) and highlights the beauty of the landscape, inviting contemplation. An evocative reminder of the surrounding world of nature, the abundant use of wood also beautifully echoes the history of the site, expressed in particular by the geometric laminations inspired by the wood stacks of the log drive. The widening of the railway viaduct to create an improbable public space at this location, a major element of the project, is the result of a skillful mastery of the site's many strengths, demonstrating great sensitivity and revealing a high level of technical know-how.
