UnderHouse

Private House Surface habitable = 174m² shon
Date : septembre 2013

A small area of land, a house that takes up the greater part of the plot and vis-à-vis are common themes in dense urban surroundings.
The UNDERHouse project explores an original underground architecture in response to these constraints.

The windows no longer feature, favouring an intimate, hidden space in which the inhabitants live in tune with the sky, clouds and stars.
The ground has ducts that pierce the surface of the garden and penetrate the volumes down to the lower floor providing natural light to the bedrooms, the living room and the bathroom. The light ducts, covered by a glass lens, are lined with systems for reflection making the most of natural lighting throughout the day.
