La Maison Gauthier is located in Laurentians, in Quebec, Canada. The house sits on a hilly terrain surrounded by bushy forest. The layout of the house is based on an asymmetrical V plan connecting two distinct areas including garage, ceramic studio and a living area.

„The various spaces are interconnected in such a way as to create a perceptual narrative for users and visitors, who experience alternating sensations of compression and expansion. The sensorial presence of simple raw materials (brick, lime, oiled oak) helps to create a tranquil atmosphere,” the architects share.
