The plot has a narrow, long and trapezoidal geometry. It has a slope of 20% with a level difference of 14m and a frontage vegetation with a sequoia at the bottom and 4 fir trees on top.

To confer the idea of a forest cottage, the project is located in order to cut less  trees as possible.

Due to the small dimension, the house recovers lost areas like the false ceiling of the corridor used as a storing suitcases and a mezzanine over the kitchen converted as a reading corner.

Intending to budget control of the work, three decisions were taken: to minimize land excavation, to prefabricate the house and to reduce aids in building site.
