The project concept was determined by the constraints of an extremely elongated site, which is reached essentially from an angle. Between each floor that extends the length of the plot, the facades unfold in tiers, according to the rhythm of the bedrooms, offering a movement that varies with the viewpoint. The opaque elements are composed of glass, screenprinted with black lines superimposed over a background printed with coloured lines. When one moves, the facade starts to move through a moirage of the two skins that creates a kinetic effect for the passer-by.
