Assignment: by competition

Date: 2019

Team: Amélie Créac’h, Marion Maux, Marie Perrigault, Marie-Ange Ducoin, Delphine Lévy


Inspired by the Feng Shui cycle of the five elements, the design of five shacks offers five different atmospheres, materials and experiences. Going from one to the other is a path between heaven and earth. Located at the center of the project (tao), the common areas are designed as very generous open spaces, housing a roof-top zone for open-air meditation.
