Project description
The Client, a painter and business-man, wanted a simple life alone in the mountains. His wishes are summarized in the following keywords: “Vanish into the site”, “Passive solar Architecture”, “Materials from site” and “One space dwelling”. We then chose to put a simple low geometric form on an existing terrace. Yellow stone walls protect the house and link it to the ground. Zinc sheet roof allows rainwater recuperation.
