Located at the bottom of the Le Massif de Charlevoix Mountain in Quebec, Canada, this train station functions as an access point for tourists visiting the great mountain. The train station building is built of locally harvested Tamarack wood that changes color overtime, integrating the building to its rural landscape. The natural lighting for the building is obtained in a satisfying way, the beautiful spacing for the wood at the admission brings both natural light and reflecting its rural architecture of the rustic barns and the timber structures. Built along the St. Lawrence River, the simplicity of the architecture design, the relationship of the scales and the river do make the train station integrates with its nature. It is a beautiful yet natural addition to its landscape.
From the train approaching g the station, this building is just a simple station building with wood façade. The light brown color if the wood however, offers warmth and welcoming feeling to the tourists visiting this magnificent landscape. Close to the rail is the wooden deck for passanger drop off. This is not quite large is size but is wonderful and is functional enough. With the sloping terrain, the station is built on the upper side of the land featuring raised ground floor with concrete base. The wall o\f the train station is made of wood with wonderful spacing at the admission and thus welcoming guests with warmth ambiance.
Reaching the station is by climbing the wooden steps with its 2 U shaped staircases for each step. This structure probably is formed by a single wooden staircase plank made with 3 wooden supports at the ends and at the middle. This design matches and looks stunning combined with the spacing for the station’s wooden wall. Upstairs, the train station is a wonderful shelter for tourists wanting to continue the trip to the ski area over the mountains by using the cable cars. Architects: STGM Architectes.
