Text description provided by the architects. This house project is founded on the concept of Louis Kahn: a company of space: the project consisted in organizing spaces with different uses related to the individual, around the space of family, gathered in a coherent space unit.

House C / Prax Architects - Garden

This project is based on the following space concepts:

- the room (space of the community) and the part (space of the individual).

Thus, establishment of the parts, (rooms or services (garage, storeroom)) defines the room, the space of life of the family (stay, kitchen); all these spaces being joined together under the same pave (roof) - the Mediterranean house closed on public space and opened on the patio-garden.

All spaces of the house dilate on the garden by the means of terraces (on all the orientations). Alls the openings “are dug” in the frontage, thus ensuring a protection the sun or the bad weather. Lastly, this building site was the subject of many details, since we drew all furniture (kitchen, chimney,pieces of furniture, etc…).
