  1. Within historic sugar silos that border the Lachine Canal, more than 30 meters high, an incredible climbing gym has taken shape. Our task: to create flexible elements that enhance and rethink this unusual space. We designed a series of moving walls from the formerly sugar-soaked wood interior (take a lick, they still taste like sugar) and a 12-meter long frontdesk composed of more than 10,000 pieces. We work in situ, engaged in a continuous dialogue with the space, drawing on ancient knowledge and new technologies, as we at Mammafotogramma like to do. We are sure you will love it.

    Au bord du Canal Lachine, au sein des anciens silos de sucre de plus de 30 mètres, s'est installer un espace unique d'escalade sportif. Ce projet propose un espace fléxible, qui améliore et repense ce lieu atypique. Nous y avons conçu une série de parois mobiles en utilisant les anciens murs de bois saturé de sucre ( Léchez-les ils goutent encore le sucre!), et un espace d’acceuil originale 12m en longueur composé de plus de 10.000 pièces. Nous travaillons sur place, continuellement engagé sur les bases des connaissances traditionelles et des nouvelles technologies, comme nous aimons le faire à Mammafotogramma.
    Vous allez l'adorer.

Wood-Skin™ is NOT SIMPLY A COMBINATION OF MATERIALS, but a way of re-think building systems.
Wood-Skin™ is a very malleable product that IS STRONG AND HAS A HIGH-END AESTHETIC.
It allows the designer to realize UNCONVENTIONAL STRUCTURES, impossible to achieve with traditional building techniques.
Wood-Skin™ does more than simply adapt to a shape: the designer can, in fact and at any time, CHANGE HIS MIND AND RESHAPE THE WORK, even during the building phase.
