Lined by an old stone wall and the vineyards, the parcel overhangs slightly the Cornaux village. This environment draws the outline of the house. The entrances are emphasized by beveled facets hollow out of the monolith.

Organized around a central kernel, embodied by the open kitchen, the day zones turn towards the wide frames on selected views. The dining space is directly related to the terrace and opens on the neighbor’s field whereas, from the living room, the eyes are drawn to the horizon with a view over the roofs of the old town.

On the ground floor, the bedrooms are given more intimacy and benefit from a direct access to the garden.
