Project Description

Inspired by the péniches (river boats) on the banks of the Saône this wooden house is moored to a very steep slope. It is connected to the road by a pedestrian bridge and a dock for cars that reinforce the marine vocabulary, while respecting the natural site: no ramps and no cut or fill of the land. All in length, as a telescope pointed to the south, the building widely opens thanks to windowed panoramas on Lyon, and the wooded hills lying on the edge of the land.
