2 houses in Montargil

FORA + Beth Hughes
Single-family houses - Montargil - 2011

 

 

The clients want to build two summer houses in a plot of land they co-own. They want to share they holiday time but still maintain their privacy. Both houses refer to the typology of the patio house, nevertheless different from each other because of the position they occupy in the sloped terrain.
One house is hidden in the landscape, its sloped roof blurs with the existing topography.
The other house is located on top of the hill acquiring a more object like character. A concrete volume that stands on the terrain and offers to its inhabitants exceptional views towards the surrounding landscape.
