Located on a mountainside, the site of the “Les Elfes” residence. The monumentality of the landscape which is offered to the observer, from several rocky capes, seemed to come into contradiction with the landscape qualities specific to the intimacy of the habitat.
Materially, the brick cladding links the reading of the exterior envelope to the stones that can be seen from the site. Most of the floors are made of wood connecting all the living spaces.
A more intimate small inner courtyard is formed by this wall and by the displacement of one of the blocks (that of the day rooms) in relation to the peak of the rock face abutting the complex. It serves as a great terrace overlooking the valley, located opposite the same block accommodating the day rooms. This place offers a more limited view of the landscape in the morning light, which creates the everyday space for any production.
