Project Description

Caught between a bizarre regulatory volume -a pentagon- and a 18 meters long pool for a couple of enthusiastic swimmers this project exploits the difficult potential of the site: a steep slope, a splendid view of the Alps and the Lyon agglomeration in the east, and a wooded area classified as unbuildable. In the main room a 23 meters arc of windows extends space on a belvedere. The zinc roofing with the same slope as the land (20%) protects from the sun and includes a solarium at the parental floor.
