The occupancy program for this residence has been divided into four pavilions, according to an organic plan, creating a central space that gives entirely to the exterior. A bit like the "heart of a village", this space connects the other bodies of buildings, geometrically distinct from each other.
The materials have been largely recycled: the interior and exterior wall coverings come from an abandoned sawmill, and the stone paving has been recovered from an old quarry. The house faces south to allow passive energy gain which, combined with a geothermal system, ensures the energy efficiency of the whole.
It is an architecture of earth, of roots. The shape emerges from the ground and its organicity refers to our rural traditions rather than to modernist canons. - Alain Carle
