The project is settled at the back of a nice private wooded plot. The demand of the clients was to built 4 houses for moving executives, which could be merged in 1 or 2 entities.

The houses are composed of 4 branches built on stilts. Such a tree structure allows a free use of the 4 parts, whether separate or joined. The ends of each wings are twisted following the natural restrictions and the aspects. The space’s flexible, liberated from any technical constraints to make easier any future change in the use of the houses.

Each house is unique by its view, its exposition and its shape.
