Private Residence in Auvergne
Located in a superb site looking down a valley and dam in the centre of the Cantal mountains in Auvergne, in the centre of France; the triangular shaped house takes maximum advantage of the unique sights.
A centre court surrounded by corridors provide natural light to the classic automobile collection garage by the use of skylights.
The steel frame of the roofs and concrete structures respond to the extreme hot and cold weather of the region.
Local grey granite clad the exterior walls while the sloping roofs are covered with the typical “lose” stone roof of the area.
