This work tackles the issues of grid and how

volumes are dug into. We have chosen to focus on users’ primary needs, such as sheltering, eating, sleeping, sharing and the fireplace.

In this built space,

all the needs of the

traveler are to be addressed. The general layout, very geometrical, provides different private spaces and a perfectly- oriented views on the mersmerizing landscape.A mock instability is kept under control, the landscape and the monolith are one. Model / Plan


Youth hostel

This youth hostel project is located on the outskirts of the city of St Etienne next to an urban greenery

park called “Couriot�. Our aim is to repurpose the old entry of the park.

The accessible grassy roof is at the same level as that of the town, the park being at a lower level.

Lush green spaces were preserved and a particular attention was paid to the optimal orientation of the bedrooms and common spaces.

Plan & crosses

Mixes used building

In a compact district of Saint Étienne called

Crêt de Roch, this project split a huge islet to create an opening through the « Jardin des plantes », located near the project.

Here, the structure of this building ‘s main

feature is the common room, totally open on the new square just in front of it.

On the ground floor, the generous height gives

the opportunity of a close interconnection between the inner and outer space.

This project separates the 3 main functions a

urban parking performs.

-The principal square is perforated by

an atrium which provides natural light for all the construction. This square is dedicated to the car storage.

-The car circulation is canalized to the North

and East sides of the main building, allowing easier use and noise reduction for the inhabitants of the rue JC TISSOT

-The sanitary facilities, Bike parking lots and

rent places are on the opposite side to circulation.

Work about landscape

How is a landscape built ? How do humans settle down in a rural environment ? With this work, we

tried to understand how humans can live in the countryside.

Adapt the environment to their needs ; Adapt themselves to the environment ? We studied building

habits and technological innovations. There are a lot of issues which wrought the landscape and took part in the interrogations of tomorrow.

Landscape map

Ecumenical chapel


This project is the meeting point between a wire frame and a mineral plinth.

Outside, you are directly on the grainy natural stone, on real bedrock. Here you

can start reflexion on a kind of exteriority.

The second place is set in the wire structure. Here, spiritual thinking is supported

by the physical separation from the pedestal. It creates a differenciation between body and spirit.




Individual dwelling

This individual dwelling is built on a slope and opens on the rural landscape.

Night spaces are separated from the living spaces , which are built half a level higher.

Living spaces are designed around a patio which stretches into the house. This extention gives some shaded spaces to the South.

The design rejected overhead lamps, to encourage use of natural lighting, and called for water

heater on the roof. The whole house uses natural ventilation and by the way keeps cooling cost down. This house is a first draft for a net zero dwelling project in the countryside.

As far as the the materials are concerned, natural stone, local wood and a rational use of concrete

provide the possibility of being un environmentally-friendly unit.
