Salon de Jeux de la Couronne Nord

The Société des salons de jeux du Québec mandated the firm Provencher_Roy to design and build a gaming room at the future site of the Couronne Nord racetrack in Laval.This gaming room is controlled by Loto-Québec, while the racetrack is controlled by Attractions hippiques Québec inc.







Surface Area

13 100 m2


2006-2007 / Concept

In general, the gaming room includes:

  • spaces reserved for entertainment (1300 VLT slot machines, 14 electronic horse races, 1 virtual gaming room)
  • reception and restaurant areas (a bar for 125 persons, a buffet restaurant for 200 persons, an executive lounge for 25 persons and a multipurpose and entertainment room for 600 persons)
  • spaces to support the games room.

The lounge was designed in close coordination with—and is physically connected to—the racetrack on the North Shore: as a result, its implementation is tightly linked to the racetrack. Various implementation scenarios for all the buildings were evaluated in terms of the constraints associated with the sites, construction in fragile environments and social compatibility of these two institutions.
