Built around a cedar tree for a large family this house is divided into two parts: a main volume dedicated to the family and a small volume for parents. The connection between the two volumes is through the living room: panoramic glass bridge on the cedar. The facade is sided with red cedar to be in harmony with the site dominated by a bicentenary cedar, the black-painted woodwork underlines the structure. Designed with a sustainable development logic the house is isolated with cellulose, heated by a heat pump and collects rainwater for domestic non-drink use.
