Wood Duck | Atelier l'Abri
This small residence has been designed to a carpenter wishing to build his house in Bolton in self-construction.
The land faces Mont Glen south and overlooks the river below. This topography orients the plan of the house. The south facade opens fully on the valley; the north side, towards the public domain, is punctuated only two discrete windows.
The footprint of the house is modest, his plan is square. On the ground floor, the living areas occupy the southern part, bathed in natural light through the curtain wall on the double height. The servants spaces occupy the north. The first floor houses two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The project lives humbly landscape. Its simple shape and uniform coating hemlock involved in erasing. Gross and evolving nature of the material preserves the surrounding nature.
