Cecile’s house

This house is an extension of an existing „Normandy style“house near Paris.
The site is on the border to a forest with old trees.
Our design aims to work with this site as a relation of views and their transformation through architectural elements.
We came up with a simple move of the plane to design a grass-roof house.
The angle of the planes corresponds to the French building codes.
The horizon and the free form of the landscape inspire the design of a more recent and lighter construction.
