Appreciation towards town and concrete for providing the following description:


The cylinder house is designed to fit between the trees of a wooded lot near Lyon, France. 

▼建筑外貌,view of the house



There are no corridors in this house nor windows marked, everything is traffic and everything is open to the outside.The furniture marks space, but its movement can reinvent the house. The plan is not fixed, to follow the evolution of the lives of these occupants.

▼立面不设开窗,no windows marked

▼开放与半开放圆柱体空间组合,combination of the open and semi-open cylinder spaces

▼家具定义空间功能,the function of the space is defined by furniture



For this house, the plan is based on a juxtaposition of a simple element, a cylinder. This cylinder can be opened, semi-open, closed, whatever its disposition it participates in the delimitation of space. It is an open plan, with the cylinder pieces as posts. There is a play of height offset on the cylinders to also provide a delimitation by the height of the ceilings. From the outside, the facades undulate, and receive the shades never frank, there are no faces.

▼独特的建筑外貌,view of the house


▼与场地环境相适应,adapt to the environment


This system of cylinder juxtaposition allows to enlarge the house but also to have a blurred outer delimitation of the house with its context.
