The area around the “L’Artisan project” on St-Hubert Street is known throughout the city for its large number of fabric boutiques. In order to draw inspiration from the context and its history, textiles were seen as an inspiring avenue for developing the project. The main idea behind the project is a warm wooden body covered with a protective masonry fabric. The slippage between the textile covering and the body inside gives an appearance reminiscent of the interaction between the different wefts of a tiled fabric and gives rhythm to the façade.
