The project is the construction of a small vacation house in Erquy on a 1067 square meter plot. Located on the Emerald coast in Brittany, Erquy is surrounded by beaches and offers a unique natural setting. Clients live a few hours away and wanted to enjoy this peaceful place on their spare time. For them, the idea of being on holiday means spending time with their family. That’s why, with a small budget, we tried to make the living space as big as possible, so the whole family could enjoy their time together in the house, even if that meant having smaller bedrooms.

The project is structured around the living room, a fundamental living space in the daily use of the house which is in direct relation with the environment. The bedrooms become secondary spaces that surround the living core.

To enjoy the most of the sun from the south and the views to the north, the living room opens to both orientations, a walk-through living space with a direct relation with nature.

The double slope slate roof and the local wood cladding create a contemporary project in line with local constructive methods and materials.
