Located in a village in the south of France. The land on which it fits, of very small size, is located between a vineyard shed in operation to the West, the parking of a neighbour to the East, surrounded by their access road, a main street to the south.

The aim of the project is therefore to create the conditions for an intimacy, an introverted house, hidden from the sight, entirely turned towards the landscape.
