equipped with this removable roof, the avignon-clouet architects’ house lets the first rays of sunlight brighten up the interior. the roof overhang seems to defy the laws of gravity, and acts as a ceiling extending the living space. the sliding windows fitted with the “vitrocsa turnable corner” system can be handled and stored to allow free movement towards the raised terrace in waxed concrete.
Stretching 7m in length, the kitchen cabinet ends its course on a back door leading to a master bedroom designed as a small house with its own gable roof. its interior geometry is disturbed by the meeting with the access tunnel which connects it to the main entrance of the house. this Hellenistic-looking passage contains the wardrobe. equipped with an upstairs bathroom, it takes on the appearance of a hotel room.
outside, a removable terrace tray covers and discovers a staircase leading under the ramparts and giving direct access to the beach. When returning from swimming, vacationers can use an outdoor shower with a huge sandblasted glass door. in the evening, the resin underside of the mobile roof, closed or open, illuminates the space.
