- Four single family homes
- The project is located on the southeast extremity of the « Champ des Mottes », a residential allotment near the village centre with mandatorily joint houses.[...]
Designed on the basis of the volumetric language and templates already present in the « Champ », the houses merge very well in the characteristic built environment of the « Champ des Mottes ».
In order to integrate a contemporary living program in a well-defined environment, the existing volumetric language is re-interpreted with a twist.
The houses offer large openings on the garden side and are turned to the south in order to let the sun penetrate generously. With this purpose, a part of the building is scooped out to create a patio, as a south-oriented part of the garden.
The patio is a light receptacle. It invites, punctuates the entry and creates a pleasant distance between public space and home. Located below, it turns part of the basement into habitable space, which can be used according to the residents needs.
The partly reducing of the building depth allows creating traversing living rooms combining environmental views, sunlight and direct contact with the garden.
The staircase treatment reinforces the daylight quota in the central part of the homes.
The volumetric result is offering visual dynamism and permeability to the whole, dialoguing with the environing buildings of the « Champ des Mottes ».
