On the outskirt of Hunspach, one of the most beautiful villages of France, a delicate project, respectful of the landscape, hand outstretched towards nature and the surrounding fields. Simple and contemporary gesture, refined and clean style, with a massive use of local wood (structure, woodwork, siding, decking), it testifies of a community that cares about enrolling into the future with respect and enthusiasm. Its timeless aesthetic ensures sustainability beyond fashions and ensures a positive image for this village entrance. Tense lines and horizontalitycreate a new stand to the hilly landscape of the surroundings and the distant landscape of the foothills of the Regional Park of the Northern Vosges. With its wide transparencies through full height windows the inside/outside limit vanishes between the main hall and the landscape. This continuity is also achieved with the large outdoor terrace, devoted to dancing evenings on summer nights, accessible through the large sliding-doors (4 m wide). This sheltered terrace opens onto the fields and is organized around a central void, shaded by vines. This contemporary reinterpretation of the vernacular farmhouse courtyards will become, within a few years, a magic interstice to dance under the stars.  View more View full description
