From the architect. Located in a small village 10 kilometers south of Besançon, the main town of the region « Franche Comté », this house was built far from the center of the village, up on the hill which dominates the river « Loue » and beneficiates of a clear and wide view . It was made for a single grandma' who takes care of her daughter's children every day. Bernard Quirot and Olivier Vichard have designed a contemporary mix between traditional ways of building houses (raw stone, wood for structure and ornemantation) and modern style (raw concrete, large windows, voluminous white spaces).

Place was preserved at most : trees were protected, the raw stones for wall's facing were found on the site. A strong presence on the construction site and a good understanding between the architects and the companies involved have been garanteed the perfect quality of the details and the delivery of the project in time.
