BeyondtheWalls

On the last path before the earth falls away into these , a small country house is tucked into a nembankment. Introverted on the edge of the cliffs, it protects it self from the wind sand the ocean spray. Inside, piles of book sares tacked in every corner and recess.The rhythm of the day is marked by the turning of pages and punctuated by the coming sand going of the house cats.

Inserted into the existing house,a small stair leads to a space that is suspended amongst the trees. From it,we can perceive the village and the horizon a long these a below.Open on three sides,it is like a book opened on to the landscape.

The space provide sanescape from every known frame of reference. It clears away limits through a rupture in form, scale, and structure. It marks the will to create a special and unique place. Abandoning the roof in order to create a simple form without any particular associations, the walls a recovered in side and out with wooden boards. The dimension of them a in window, unusual and non standard, entirely modifies the relationship with the exterior. From the concealment of the structure—so that the window can open completely on to the landscape—to there petition of the lamps in to the distance through a game of reflection,the space leads its occupants in to towards an unknown and mysterious world.

The window of a house that exists no longer

Beyond simply providing a view for its inhabitant sand offering a place for evasion,the space also creates a new image with in the landscape. It dramatizes an introspective life as incarnated  by the library, frames it through the large opening, and decorates it with the surrounding nature.

The focalization on this newly unveiled space creates a relationship that tends  to make the existing housed is appear.The perception of this strange abstract scene,rising exnihilo, proposes to the observer as well to escape in to his own imagination.
