La Pointe by L’Abri
La Pointe is a ready-to-camp small wooden cabin created for the Poisson Blanc Regional Park located north of Ottawa. It is designed by L’Abri, an architectural design studio for renovation or new construction projects, from the first sketch to the execution plans.
The small wooden cabin has a triangular geometry shape. It offers a reinterpretation of the legendary A-frame popularized in North America in the 1950s. Creating a simple structure that would provide functional usages and small nature-oriented spaces for a capable of hosting two to four people was the main goal. The interior spaces are minimal and bathed in natural light. The table can be converted into an extra bed in the kitchen. The exterior cladding of natural cedar board and batten will take on a silvery hue over the years.
