Barn-Like House Overlooking Canada’s Wild Landscape

A barn-like house can help connect you to the rural dimension of life, especially when living in a secluded area. If you love modern Canadian home design, you will definitely love the Malbaie VIII Residence. Imagined by MU Architecture, the contemporary home reinterprets the traditional barn in a subtle manner.

Details like the shape and height of the house are reminiscent of big old barns that used to be scattered around the land. An inverted floor plan spreading over 3,500 square feet makes this barn-like house is located in the Charlevoix region of Quebec, Canada.

Dark grey metal dresses up the home’s exterior, making it look sleek and eye-catching. Geometric architecture found an ally in this dark gray solution covering the sides of the house and shaping the roof. Contrasting white cedar wood creates an inspiring connection to the green surroundings. Even more, the carefully manicured garden seems to make it all come together in a dreamy home.

Protecting the interiors from forces of nature through architecture, the studio imagined three cutouts in the house’s volumetric architecture. This allows for the appearance of spaces tucked under and spaces that reach for the sky. With an inverted floor plan that encourages seeing panoramas of the surroundings beyond floor-to-ceiling windows,  Malbaie VIII Residence frames tree trunks in all directions.

According to the architects, “the experience of the house takes root in the basement, within its wood cladded and concrete formed walls, where a large playroom and children’s dormitory cohabit. At the ground level, the main lobby, entirely covered in wood, welcomes you in a cozy spa-like atmosphere. From the main entrance you can access four large en-suite bedrooms and the main staircase. In contrast to the white cedar walls, the railing of the staircase is made entirely of raw hot rolled steel. With surprising lightness it acts as a backbone connecting the different levels of the house.”

Upstairs, the living space and spaces connecting these modern areas all capture glimpses of the surroundings via dark framed windows. Where the open-floor kitchen, dining, lounge and living space are, the panoramas behind large windows bring inside an almost still landscape under an ever-changing sky. Cedar walls enhance coziness while a fireplace under cathedral ceilings make the living space seem like an enchanted forest.

“At night, low light levels slip the ceilings into shadow creating a warm but mysterious atmosphere that evokes the traditional Québécois evenings of yesteryear.” Photographs by Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard of YUL Photo showcase the way white cedar planks mark the entrance and upstairs terraces. Every detail inside seems to mirror a minimalist version of the outdoors, with large, open, tall spaces.

It’s fun comparing different homes, especially when they’re named in an ascending manner. This elegant and energy efficient home is known as the Malbaie V Residence. And there is one more here on our site: this luxury hillside residence taking advantage of the surroundings is also known as Malbaie VI Marée Basse. Do you have a favorite Malbaie yet?

A good building should make you want to look at it. Even if not always liked by passers-by, it should always make them feel something. Manchester Metropolitan’s University’s business school is a building that effortlessly fits this criteria. Indeed for many, the building by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios is their first taste of the architecture of Manchester as they travel along the arterial road, Mancunian Way. With its distinct ski-slope roof, and glittering mirrored appearance, it provides a flash of silver, and a dazzling break from the dull greys of the motorway, greeting motorists in a slightly space-age way as they enter the city

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
