White House Snake

You can access this contemporary house with pool located on a lake surrounded by a wood with a retractable telescopic footbridge which isolates it from the riverbank. Pierre MINASSIAN’s agency drew a glass pavilion set on water between two slabs of serpentine white concrete forming and roof patio, supported by stilts. The implementation of the raw materials is involved in the purification of the architecture: the glass - sliding for some - are embedded in the pavement. The internal organization of this house on one level, with separate day/night spaces respond to the solar orientation and views constraint. It is remarkable with a structure in steel made up with two steel plate of 2cm thick cut, folded and suspended. These plates make up a thick façade that coat technical room that is low-glassed of the house. The pool is immersed in the lake water and works by overflowing.
