Text description provided by the architects. The site faces the river Seine on an old pathway of kitchen gardens composed of narrow plots between the village's heart and the vineyard slopes of champagne.

There is an orchard at the back of the plot that we wanted to preserve at all costs.

Constrained by a terrain of 15 meters width, the building grows in length stopping before the orchard while following the movement of the vine rows perpendicular to the hill.
