Cabanes perchées sur pilotis, Le Boréon

Cabins perched on stilts, Le Boréon
The aim was to create two cabins on the edge of the Mercantour National Park, designed to be comfortable all year round for luxury tourist rentals. The architect's response was to create a slightly elongated, unitary form log cabin, tapered at both ends to fit snugly between the trees. The architecture forms a nine-sided prism. The living space rests on a three-dimensional structure of V-shaped larch trunks. Each prism face has a window allowing nature and larch-filtered sunlight filtered to penetrate the interior spaces. Each moment of the day offers a unique experience and distinctive interplay of light and shadow. Dark burnt-wood cladding integrates these cabins perfectly into their forest surroundings.
The jury's opinion: "Everything in these cabins is architectural, right down to the window seat. It's the quintessence of an architect's work, from the structural aspect to the smallest interior design details."
