Set on the edge of the woods, this house was built according to the wishes of the family that owns the land. It was also largely their own work. A central entrance space reminiscent of a threshing floor is flanked on each side by living and working realms. Room-height sliding doors allow it to be used either as an extension of the indoor areas or as an open space with an adjoining patio. The studio tract contains a sleeping gallery and a garage with an attic storey above. Black, exposed-concrete spatial cells for the bathroom, larder and staircase form an attractive contrast to the pale wooden surfaces. On the upper floor, an elongated terrace creates a link between the compact bedrooms and the wooded landscape.
