Set on the side of a mountain, this residence benefits from optimal orientation. Its elongated form, incorporating a succession of generously fenestrated rooms, brings generous sunlight to the south façade throughout the day. Its inverted interior configuration provides panoramic views of the surrounding summits. Towards the mountain, the frame of the house is enveloped in a large black cape that protects it from the extremes of nature. Towards the valley, the house reveals itself to the light through its white wood cladding.
