This two holiday home construction, located high in the mountains, was built for a brother and sister in love with this natural setting. The single building consists of two semi-detached houses with a shared porch. The slope of the land allows access to the garden for each dwelling, while the respective living rooms, placed at different levels, guarantee the families’privacy. This wood and larch frame building, to which concrete brings a homogeneous carcass stripped of all artifice, fits into the neighbouring mineral and vegetal landscape.
The jury’s opinion: This project demonstrates the connivance you can create between vernacular and contemporary architecture. Here, rough concrete meets dry stone. The assumed modernity inside opens straight onto the vast landscape.
