French River Municipal Building

Institutional & Cultural

This new municipal complex houses essential services in the community of Noëlville such as the municipal offices, council chambers, a medical clinic and emergency services staff space and a large garage for ambulances and fire trucks. The building is constructed completely out of wood and has a large glu-laminated wood structure over the main entrance, lobby and council chambers. This main central spine, the focal piece, is intended to represent the structure of a canoe.
