Strøm Nordic Spa
Design: Chevalier Morales Architectes
Location: Old Québec, Canada
Located on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, the Strøm Nordic Spa in Old Quebec, which opened its doors in October 2018, is a finalist at the International Hotel & Property Awards! These awards celebrate the most beautiful designs in all sectors of real estate and architecture around the world.
Promote Quebec in a world-renowned competition
Strøm Nordic Spa honours local talents by highlighting the work of the designers and architects who led to the success of this major project. A remarkable recognition for Quebec’s expertise in the field of Nordic spas. In recent years, Quebec has carved out a place for itself in the wellness industry on the world stage and it is with great pride that Strøm Nordic Spa will represent local talents at the gala.
Strøm Nordic Spa in Old Quebec: a unique architectural gem
The Design Society refers to the Strøm Nordic Spa as a true architectural gem, citing the design intelligence and talent with which Lemay-Michaud’s architects have managed to integrate materials and stylistic elements that recall the harbour past of the Brown Basin, located at the very end of the magnificent Champlain Parkway along the river.
“For the design of each of our establishments, we always make it a point to integrate the architectural approach into the surrounding environment, both from a visual and historical point of view. We are very proud that this priority is recognized on an international level,” explained Guillaume Lemoine, President of Strøm Nordic Spa.
The spa borrows its colours from the landscapes of our winters, from the grey of the river; its minimalist character leaves plenty of room for a view of the St. Lawrence and adds to the pleasure of the experience for guests. As for the materials – glass, stone, steel – they evoke the cargo ships of bygone days and are inspired by the maritime past of this sector of the old Capital.
Strøm Nordic Spa offers 32,000 square feet of indoor space divided into four pavilions, eight pools, some of which include waterfalls, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, two dry saunas and two steam baths, the largest flotation bath in North America, an infinity pool, a “lazy river” hot water pool, 17 massage rooms and a gastronomic bistro with 70 seats, and an additional 30 seats on the terrace during summer months.
The Ordre des architectes du Québec rewards the Strøm Nordic Spa!
Another source of pride for this Old Quebec spa: the Ordre des architectes du Québec has included it in its list of 2019 Awards of Excellence in Architecture! Here is an excerpt from what the jury said to justify its decision: “From the exploratory and development phase of the project, the primary source of inspiration was the St. Lawrence River, its vastness and the quiet strength that it emanates.
Then, given the geographical location of the site and its history linked to maritime transport, which contributed to the development of the city itself, the decision was taken to implement the project in its physical environment but also to anchor it in its history. As a result, the layout of the spa facilities is inspired by the footprint of the former harbour docks that once formed the banks of the river, creating volumes that alternate between full and empty.”
