Text description provided by the architects. A house in the landscape of the Vilaine valley to rest of city life: Given the quality of this environment, we choose to use simplicity. From the outside, it is a straightforward and unobtrusive relationship with the landscape, a mass of wood blending with the surrounding tones. From the inside, it's a preciousness assemblies, plans, framing and noble materials decomposing the space to create a prism compared to the multiple and surprising environment.

The house alights at break of slope, in articulation of the landscape, as inhabited gazebo. The plan offers various design possibilities around an intimate upper level and a bottom living space linked to a large balcony terrace.

Two bedrooms, dedicated to two couples, are linked to a central bathroom with wide doors with brick partition. This can be likened to one or other of the chambers when the two pairs are not present simultaneously. The floor of the upper level extends to the kitchen worktop. A third door with brick partition is placed here to help in day to open the perspective on the entire depth of the house, featuring the series of spaces.

A bookcase / stairs / kitchen articulates the two levels, and allows optimizing the feeling of space by integrating these functions in a single place. A long thin room expands to West pinion, deconstructed in its angles to watch, the Vilaine that wraps around the field: south through a long bay of 10 m, and north through a panoramic piercing sitting on a wooden bench and concrete, both storage and wood stove support.
