Gauthier House by Atelier Barda

Gauthier House is a minimal residence located in Mont-Tremblant, Canada, designed by Atelier Barda. The plot of the house is located on a rocky wooded mound. It is belted to the east by the main road, and to the west by the equestrian farm owners. The clients’ desire was to favor a volume whose views would be largely oriented towards the horse riding below, while enjoying the privacy created naturally by the topography of the plot. The woody filter preserved in the slope favors a sequenced and progressive approach to the building. The volume, not visible from the main road below, appears progressively leading to the imposing opaque brick facade, composed of a single offset arch constituting the main entrance of the house.
