Commissioned by a family of four, this house is located in the lower Alps, a more rural landscape than ski-oriented regions. The house needed to capture the surrounding landscape, provide generous spaces inside but appear contained from the outside. Our initial design, reminiscent of 1950s regional constructions, was rejected on the basis that new houses had to have a double pitched roof. Under certain conditions of sustainable design, however, a flat roof would be allowed. We seized the opportunity to express the changing climate context and further rejuvenate the Alpine design typology.
