Text description provided by the architects. Promoting interaction

We aim at combining urban infrastructure related to comfort and connectivity with the practical aspect of rural life. In our hybrid scheme both scenarios blend together in spaces properly equipped (with adaptable usages, thermic and closure conditions, etc).

Mediation process

The building program that combined housing and offices responded to a cooperation principle that promote a more active coexistence and relationships among owners, their children and the administrator’s family, and of the latter with daily life labors.

Small ecological actions

Constructive system was defined by materials and technological categories related to environmental efficiency criteria and energetic performance. The building used recycled wood; walls were built with stone of local extraction and standard dry construction systems.

Activating the available energy

The recent tree felling of a nearby wood made bark planks available and the skillful carpentry of local workers led to complementary construction of a small house for administrators with potential for future extensions given the roofs’ height.
