Perched on the crest of a hill, the residence is a monolithic sculpture —one that turns its back on the rest of the compound, looking out to to the historic city of Grenoble in the valley and the jagged French Alps beyond. By creating a timber over poured-concrete structure, the house is crafted like a hulking, hovering object. Its dark hue results from the asphalt finish applied to the local pine.
