“In a hamlet situated in the heart of the Drôme Provençale, the project concerns the construction of a holiday house able to host a dozen persons. The sloping terrain is South oriented and have an exceptional panoramic view on the far landscape and the Ventoux mountain.


Located in the north of the parcel and totally open in the far landscape and the south light, the project have been made to ensure that the roof level does not exceed the street level.


The architecture of this house is a reference to the typical farm hangar present in this region and present the advantage to reduce the cost of the building.


This inspiration leads us to conceive a super-rational supporting structure. Indeed nine concrete porticos have been installed and it’s covering all the living areas. South oriented and withdrawal from the supporting structure, each living space of the house have an extension towards the outside.


Theses terraces recovering of timber truss define a transition space between the inside and the outside but also formed a solar protection system.


View from inside the installation of this porticos expose a beautiful painting of living nature.”
