Our development vision

The Norden vision is part of an ecological and environmental perspective. Inspired by Scandinavian architecture, the buildings blend perfectly into the Nordic landscape, both aesthetically and functionally.

Consistency throughout the design

One of our goals is to create a feeling of prestige and homogeneity throughout Le Norden residences. To do so, it is essential to maintain a similar line of inspiration.

  • EXTERIOR CLADDING – all walls should begin 8 inches (20.32 cm) from the floor
  • MASONRY – natural stone, reconstituted concrete stone, or compatible masonry (Lafitte stone’s equivalent)
  • WOOD – pine (or equivalent product), Maibec (or equivalent product), KWP (or equivalent product) wood products, or cedar shingles
  • CORNICES – aluminum, wood materials KWP (or equivalent product)
  • ROOFING – asphalt shingles or metal sheets
  • DOORS AND WINDOWS – coloured windows
  • FIREPLACES – natural design (masonry is obligatory)
  • OUTDOOR RAMPS – glasses, wood and metal, or only metal
  • LIGHTING – LEDs only
  • ADDRESS – built in stone with the Le Norden logo

Details we recommend for greater harmony

  • Winding paths to integrate the surrounding topology;
  • Pavers, river stones, stone plates and asphalt;
  • A combination of coatings is allowed;
  • Maintenance work inspired by the existing natural elements;
  • Retaining walls with material already in place (you could also use blocks of stone or common concrete blocks covered with natural stones);
  • Landscaping work highlighting natural elements and landscapes;
  • Domestic composting;
  • In ground pools and hot tubs only, opt for a natural integration;
  • Dark-coloured iron fences (or imitation iron), or dark-coloured mesh fences. Can be mixed with cedar.


  • Exterior cladding made of a singular material (such as masonry or 100% wood);
  • Solid wood or log wood;
  • Brightly coloured exterior siding (colours must be approved by the developer);
  • Stacking 0-3/4” in the aisles and facade;
  • Commercial water fountains (any decorative element must be approved by the developer);
  • Above ground pools;
  • Commercial vehicle visible in a driveway;
  • Any visible trailer, boat or snowmobile;
  • Prefabricated shed;
  • Temporary carport (or any other temporary addition);
  • PVC fence (must be approved by the developer);
  • Coloured outdoor lighting (except for the holiday season, including the months of December and January);


  • Propane tanks;
  • Mechanical equipment (air conditioner or heat pump);
  • Carry out development work within 12 months of taking possession.


  • Numerous paved surfaces (when choosing the materials, keep the space’s vegetation and natural aspect in mind as much as possible).

Our water recovery system unique in Quebec

Ecology is one of Le Norden’s top priorities. For the sake of the environment, we have imagined the optimal way to recover rainwater on every lot. A project demonstrating a commitment with Quebec’s Ministère de l’environnement.

  • Saves 30,000 litres of water/year/house
  • 6,600-litre tank on each lot
  • 80% of water returns to the tank, for outdoor and toilet water use.
  • If water overflows from the tank, it spills into a well built of rocks, designed to return the water back to into the ground (rather than to the municipal water system).
