Saint-Léonard borough is looking to acquire a new outdoor stage that can host a wide variety of cultural events and provide a sheltered space for various community activities. This new cultural facility should be conducive to the development of winter festivities.

The wooden motif and the openwork layout of the sunshade blend into the park’s green environment. The sunshades have the dual function of mitigating the brightness at the end of the day and partially revealing to visitors approaching the site the surprise that is taking shape inside. Indeed, the sobriety of the wooden motif on the outside of the sunshades gives way to a bright, vibrant red inside. A nod to the traditional red curtain of the theatrical world transposed to the ceiling and the back of the sunshades, all supported by this unusual structure of conical columns on pivots. The main sunshade has integrated architectural lighting, which animates the facade in the evening and makes it the main facade of the pavilion.
