Wall house

Fascinated by the play of light on mashrabiya, the client wanted a radical piece of architecture for his new home. On a south facing plot, light filtration was naturally a key feature in this project. It then seemed necessary to deploy this principle of filtration and apply it to the entire program of the house, a latticework for light and for use. By developing a succession of walls, the spaces of the house were spontaneously born between each of them. The architecture is reduced to its founding principle: the separation of the wall.
