From the architect. The building accommodates epileptics with poor mobility. It is located within a pinewood at the edge of a reserve forest. The room with windows all around offers a permanent relation with the surrounding nature and gives them the impression of being outdoors.
The « vessel » made of glass with a structure of wood and iron is based on pillars and floats therefore above the nature. A wooden footbridge meanders under the pine trees and assures the link to the existing building.

Peloties, horizontal cantilevered planes and combining between materials give the Lennox Residence beauty and uniqueness.

Also I like the site which is in the forest. the architect get benefit from the site by arranging the trees around the Lennox Residence to create Residence privacy.

Moreover, it’s nice idea to extend the interior to the exterior by using glass as a material for the walls.
