Project Description

Built on a hillside, on the “dragon’s back”, this house faces the river and its dam below. It consists of two stacked and staggered blocks: a volume of concrete placed on a volume of timber, itself suspended on three sides.
This project is conceived as a challenge to the laws of gravity and to the resilience of materials.
