House H2

House H2

This luxurious house is located on an exceptional site in South Corsica.

House H2

A peninsula surrounded by a beach and a port that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea.

House H2

The residential project was conceived by the architects Vincent Coste and Bruno Fléchet in a logic of erasure in relation to the place.

House H2

The wind-lean endemic vegetation and the resurgence of existing granitic phalanges have been identified and localized thus serving as geometric anchors for the project.

House H2

The main house stretches and folds longitudinally according to the curvatures inflicted by the banks of the plot.

House H2

Four distinct volumes are positioned on the sandstone of the frames and orientations specific to the sea.

House H2

These pieces of dark granite cut in “flint” generate in between and configure a path linking each of the entities.

House H2

This interstice unfolds and forms the backbone of the project.

House H2

Ensuring the entrance of the house, it serves as a place of ramp, terrace, loggia and beach according to its position.

House H2

This device allows crossing the landscape and manages views towards the sea.

House H2

It creates intimate outdoor spaces, ideal for outdoor living out of sight.

House H2

This course on the ground is accentuated in mirror by a major awning positioned in levitation without a single point of support to the ground.

House H2

It is the structural tour de force and the foundation of the project “a line suspended in the landscape”.

House H2

The architectural unit of the project is made by this majestic red cedar beam filtering the light in stripes on each plane met.

House H2

This pergola refines itself towards the views and contributes to accentuate the fineness of the facades from the sea.

House H2

This imposing volume of wood striated on all its faces is also crossed by vegetation and fragilized by the perforation of a granite monolith.

House H2

At its base two basins with movable bottoms forming giant rectangular basins are inserted in the composition and offer reflections to the general atmosphere.

House H2

Exterior plant rooms are also inserted in the form of a patio to allow nature to penetrate the heart of the project.

House H2

The living room in transparency on the sea offers a view without a cut on the horizon.

House H2

Hermetic night volumes set back, one carpet in the vegetation and offering tapestries of shrubs or sandy beach to the interiors, the other open to the west offering in postcard a setting sun.

House H2

The entrances of the volumes are carved by huge swathes of granite.

House H2

The play of the monumental shutters of wood sliding and pivoting, adept of a variable geometry aiming to change the physiognomy of the elevations, allows the vertical shading of the volumes of life and the management of the sunshine.

House H2

All materials were chosen to make the whole mimetic instead.

House H2

The living room of which the three faces are totally transparent, offers a view on the sea without crossing the horizon
