Inspired by the seaside beach cabins found in Europe, the new service building at Parc Sabrevois, in the Montreal-North borough, is fun and colorful. It injects a healthy dose of optimism and joy into an area in dire need of it. Located at the corner of rue Sabrevois and avenue des Récollets, the park is a hinge between a commercial and industrial sector as well as a dense and multicultural residential area typical of this borough of Montreal. The building is part of a complete redevelopment of the park used by young families in the neighborhood. The addition of play and water modules enhances the park's service offering, which was previously a rather poorly defined green space. The project greatly improves the quality of the urban area for the population: it is a friendly environment that encourages a healthy and active lifestyle. The functional aspect of the service building is clearly expressed by its form: five small houses that each has its own function: changing room, toilets, storage, maintenance and electromechanical utilities. The colors identify these different activities, united under one roof, a metallic ribbon that emerges from the ground and punctuates the profile of the building. Like small mountains closing off the park's horizon behind the circle of water modules, the building becomes a landscape.
