location Koumi
function private house

When approaching, the house appears like a huge abstract shape rising from the ground, with its shaped angle following the steep angle of the land. It seems to be sliding on the ground, a sense of tension and movement is expressed. The strong angle of the house was also guided by the requirement of winter conditions, the heavy load of snow slides from the roof. So entering the house from the covered bridge you find yourself into a huge simple single room (6m high ceiling). Like a mini loft in the middle of the forest, it is unexpected and refreshing. For a second you forget you are in the middle of a forest. The light seems to be coming from everywhere, between the ceiling and the walls, the volumes are enlightened by long invisible windows, it has almost a religious feel creating a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The changes of the light outside create subtle changes in the interior all day long: natural lighting become the artist of a live performance.
