Built-in the heart of an oak forest in the Vézère Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the house was designed as a place dedicated to escape, rest and creativity.
As an observatory of life, the immense glass façades offer a real immersion in the abundant foliage of the large oaks of the surrounding wood. They open up our imagination and offer a natural picture in motion, evolving with the rhythm of time and the seasons.
« Installed in the ridgeline, the rooms and spaces for sharing and well-being are as if suspended in the foliage of the oak grove. »

Between vernacular architecture and contemporary creation, the house asserts its belonging to our time, like a new stratum added to the sedimentation of this site made up of old stone and lauze buildings.
It reinterprets the traditional forms of typical Dordogne constructions and reuses materials already present on the site. The stone, recovered from old agricultural buildings in ruins, and the wood, from the surrounding forests, dialogue and reveal the vertical and slender lines of the tree trunks.
