Como parte de un sitio originalmente destinado a la realización de un teleférico, un objeto de madera monolítico juega con la topografía y el contexto.

  Las superficies de las fachadas reaccionan mediante la deformación con el fin de exaltar los alrededores y hacer conexiones visuales en todas direcciones: los bosques y afloramientos de roca hacia el este, a los picos nevados al oeste, y el valle del Ródano hacia el norte, 860 metros más abajo.

Usando una organización en dos niveles, el edificio incorpora la pendiente y se asegura la privacidad de las distintas partes del programa: Apartamento principal: espacios de día y espacios nocturnos. Apartamento secundario: la oficina de masaje médico y taller.

Really liked this place until I saw the front facade. I love the wood, the windows, even the shape of the house, and the interior spaciousness, but the front facade presents an awful face. Not enough windows, and the slant of the roof line is to little to look intentional and too much to just slide.
