Text description provided by the architects. In May 2009, the agency Projectiles was contacted by MD, a carpenter quite unlike any other. Art collector, passionate about sailing boats, he entrusted Reza Azard, Hervé Bouttet and Daniel Mészàros with the creation of an office complex as an extension to his workshop. At the time, two warehouses of 1,500 square metres were situated twenty metres apart. The back of the parcel was free.

The extension that the three men proposed is introduced between the two existing volumes within the authorised outline limitation, joins with the two warehouses and branches out towards the far end of the parcel. The different volumes, perched four metres on top of roughly-hewn beams, are placed freely within the authorised limitation.

They are connected by interior foot bridges.The construction isentirely built in wood, including the framework. The carpentry consists of a unique window dimension, sometimes fixed, sometimes opening.

The complex is immersed in an arboretum made up of twenty trees of a dozen different species, offering blossom throughout the year. This architecture introduced into the heart of an ordinary industrial estate, represents a veritable heterotopia.
