Fauvel Boat

A room divider for a new home in Laval Quebec divides the living room from the dining room.  Built for a client with an affinity with ships we designed a stone clad wall in a stylized shape of a boat.  The base has a steel “hull” with a bow and stern.  Glass fins suggest the wall shapes of the ship.

The house is situated close to the banks of Riviere de Prairies, the “bow” of the feature wall is oriented  at centre of the doors leading to the river. as if the boat was entering the water.

The room divider houses a see through fireplace, and an entertainment centre.
