Text description provided by the architects. The Little house is settled lengthwise nearby an existing tree, its southern side being a large window. The way the house has been thought, answers to the very initial demand of the clients who wished to associate their desire of architecture and quality of open spaces with a tight budget.

The wood, element of both frame and frontage, gives rhythm to the frontage and the access balcony. A terrace built on stilts at the edge of the house, is a continuation of the living space. The difference in height of the plot is useful to raise the house of 80 cm and offer views on the garden.
