Contemporary Villa in Lyon Suburbs


Barres & Coquet Architects designed the house around wooden containers, installed parallel to the slope lines. They  construct both the domestic space and the surrounding landscape, allowing framing on distant views.

By their installation and capacity, the transformable boxes integrate all the functions and allow a high modularity. The walls – either swiveling, either foldable – organize and divide the space.

Carefully chosen fabrics and materials make more cozy interior despite the minimalism and raw materials of the main structure. Photography by Aurélien Aumond
