An exceptional spa in the heart of Old Quebec

The fourth Strøm Nordic spa that will open its doors in the summer of 2018 in Old Quebec is a major project that will welcome more than 350 visitors every day. “This is our biggest project so far, especially for the first phase. […] This is going to be an exceptional spa “stated Guillaume Lemoine, during the ground breaking ceremony held last Thursday in the presence of the Strøm Nordic Spa team, the partners as well as the architects of LemayMichaud.

The development of the next Strøm spa is taking place in the Brown Basin, a place of great historical value. In fact, the first lines of the future spa were inspired by historical and legendary stories, as well as by the port and commercial activities of old. The architects of LemayMichaud emphasize the importance of the views in the project. On the one hand, we will have a breathtaking view of the river and on the other hand, we will have a view of the Cap des Diamants. “I firmly believe it will be one of the most beautiful spas in North America. Quebec City can be proud of this project!” added Guillaume Lemoine at the event. True to its traditions, the Strøm in Old Quebec promises a sleek architectural style, always inspired by Scandinavian and European architecture.

The Strøm in Old Quebec will offer the same services as our two current spas: thermotherapy, massage therapy and beauty treatments for the body, face and nails. The facilities will include 4 pavilions with a total of 32,000 square feet of interior space, a bistro with a large dining room, two Finnish dry saunas, two steam baths (hammam), a manicure and pedicure room, 16 massage rooms (single and double) and 8 water basins, including a signature basin with Epsom salt, an infinity pool with direct views of the river, a pool that is half indoor and half outdoor and three waterfalls. The building will be environmentally friendly thanks to its heating and cooling system using the principle of geothermal energy with its 30 wells dug more than 600 feet underground.

From now until the opening, to follow the progress of the work and to benefit from advantageous pre-sale offers of up to 50% off, we invite you to frequently visit our Old Quebec online store.

What’s new with the construction of the Strøm in Old Quebec?

The construction of the Strøm in Old Québec is progressing well. Since last August, the team in charge of the project has carried out the mobilization on site, the access roads to the site, the ground preparation, excavation work, dynamic soil compaction and recently they poured the foundations of the building. The next steps include the erection of the steel structure planned for December-January. The construction is well on track and on schedule. Since the concrete work for the foundations is almost complete, it will be possible to erect the steel structure in mid-December, which will allow a better visualization of the volume of the future building. In February-March, the building’s exterior envelope will be completed, which will then allow starting with the interior work that will continue until the summer. Finally, the basins and the landscaping will be completed in the spring-summer of 2018. As of today we have completed approximately 15% of the overall construction.

A peaceful retreat in the heart of the capital

A peaceful retreat in the heart of the capital

AN INTERVIEW WITH PIERRE MIERSKI, ARCHITECT AT LEMAYMICHAUD

The development of the next Strøm spa will take place in the Brown Basin, a place of great historical value. The first lines of the future spa envisioned by Pierre Mierski were inspired by historical and legendary stories and by the port and commercial activities of old. Then the creative minds met around the drawing table and everything started to take shape.

 

WHAT ARE THE ELEMENTS IN THE CONCEPTUALISATION OF THE FUTURE STRØM TO ASSURE THE CONTINOUS EFFORTS MADE IN 2008 BY LA CENTRE D’INTERPÉTATION DU BASSIN BROWN TO RECALL THE HISTORY OF THE SITE?

The genesis of the project is based on the idea to recall the history of the site. The plan of the spa is formed on the outline of the old docks that once were situated on the banks of the location, creating alternately full and empty spaces. This architectural set will be integrated onto the site in strata descending towards the river, recalling the different historic layers making up the memory of the location.

 

WHAT IS THE CONSTRUCTION CONCEPT OF THE STRØM IN ORDER TO ENHANCE THE PATH CONNECTINGTHE PLAINS TO THE SAINT-LAURENCE RIVER AND ALSO GIVE THE CLIENTS PREFERRED ACCESS TO THE ESCALIER DU CAP-BLANC?

The descent down the escalier du Cap-Blanc offers an exceptional panoramic view of the river and the shore. The axis of the stairs, which is the line that connects the plains to the river, will be extended both in the interior and the exterior, for example in the building that will accompany the client on his or her walk. The project is harmoniously integrated into the landscape by its horizontal architecture along the river, and is inspired by its natural materials and mineral colors. Green roofs will cover the buildings and the layout of the site in symbiosis with the landscape will unite and energize the river shore, enhancing the visual quality of the waterfront panorama.

 

SINCE THE RIVER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF THE HISTORY AND THE IMAGE OF THE CITY OF QUEBEC, HOW WILL THE POWER OF THAT FORCE OF NATURE INFLUENCE THE THERMAL SPA EXPERIENCE?

Evidently the presence of the river was the main source of inspiration in the design of the project. The immensity and the quiet strength of the river are themselves evoking such power that they give the client an instant escape. The entire project will be in constant harmony with the river, enhancing the site in summer and winter.  The openings in the pavilions will frame the various views towards the water and the outdoor spaces will encourage the relaxation facing this landscape. The openings will also offer breathtaking views of the cliff, which is particularly spectacular in fall. Along the river a pedestrian walkway made out of wood will tie the whole site together, reinforcing the contact between the client and the river.

 

WILL THERE BE ELEMENTS AT THE STRØM SPA QUEBEC THAT CAN’T BE FOUND IN THE OTHER STRØM SPAS?

There are several unique and innovative experiences planed, such as inside baths with windows overlooking the river. The customer experience will be developed to create strong links between the thermal experience and the river.

 

IS THERE A PLANNED ACCESS FOR THE PUBLIC TO THE BANKS?

A pedestrian path will be built along the river banks allowing the public to enjoy the proximity of the river. The path will be built below the spa facilities.
