From the architect: The simple volumes of the house were designed to marry with the orientation of the land. Changes to the natural slope of the hill are thus kept to a minimum and its wild character preserved. The project is composed of two distinct parts: the main house and a dry-stone outbuilding.
The house, with a floor area of 296 sq m, is built on one and the same level but divided into several units. The ground floor comprises three separate same height volumes: the 74 sq m. garage, the entrance/kitchen area and the bedroom/living room area, the latter containing 4 bedrooms including the master bedroom. The outbuilding, with a floor area of 95 sq m, is slightly higher than the house, and lies on the north-west part of the land.
The project is divided into two, along a plant-lined canal, transparency enhancing its perspective along the full length of the house. The entry proceeds around a pond. MaisonP is not a monolith but an architectural composition, structured around empty spaces, in reminiscence of the bioclimatic architecture of Provence.
