This winter, a temporary space located at the corner of rue Notre-Dame and 11e Avenue is being brightened up with a fun rest area.
The installation, named Aux Souches, consists of rotating, illuminated stumps where passers-by can sit down and relax. Tree trunks complete the landscape design and create the effect of an urban forest. At dusk, the site radiates special magic with its dreamy lighting.
This rest area is intended to give a moment of relaxation to Lachine residents who are out doing their shopping. Ville de Montréal’s Bureau de Design, in conjunction with the Borough’s various departments, is overseeing this project, which is part of the economic revitalization plan Agir maintenant - l’achat local au cœur des actions. Some 25 stations have been created in 17 boroughs. The Lachine station installation has been designed by L. McComber - architecture vivante and HUB Studio. You can stop by and enjoy it until the end of March.
