Construction of a unique park

© GAME atelier d'architectes

The current cramped and outdated museum leaves little room for new attractions and the growing number of visitors while still respecting the dogs’well-being. With the new 20 000 m2 park, visitors will be able to familiarise themselves with and learn all about their four-legged friend : from the myths and legends surrounding its 300-year history to the particularities of its character. A living museum and a fun, interactive and educational centre close to nature is being created. The needs of the St. Bernards and breeding conditions adapted to their species are at the very heart of the project. The dogs will feel comfortable and have enough space to move freely, be cared for and trained, but also to withdraw and rest in peace.

The building is designed in the shape of a dog’s paw print. The Saint-Bernard dog is to be discovered in five themed worlds presenting its main character traits: Barry Sauveteur, Barry Ami, Barry Star, Barry Chéri, Barry Joueur. These themes will accompany visitors throughout their visit, offering them a unique and unforgettable experience.
