Étienne Gaboury’s design for his own family home shows well his unique approach to a regionally minded idiom of modern design. Clad entirely in wood shakes, the home is conceived as an energetic, almost organic, assembly of angled and projecting forms. Inside, the residence features spaces both large and intimate, with a fusion of wood, large areas of unembellished (sometimes curved) white plasterwork and decoratively conceived areas of brick, including an impressive hearth.
A graduate of the University of Manitoba and the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Gaboury began his practice in 1961.
