The gently sloping land sinks into the Calvados landscape. We appropriate the Norman farmhouse typology to update and complicate it by welding on two body elements, in order to create a double and thicker farmhouse.
The rooms align in two distinct bands: one in the West with the main rooms, and the other in the East with secondary rooms. Greenhouses ensure a year-round natural ventilation allowing a softly regulated comfort, and stimulate an acute consciousness of the seasons.
The house’s skeleton is in wood, and the walls are a filling of hemp concrete. The envelope is then covered with wooden cladding.
