Jean-Louis Chanéac

Photography Raphaëlle Saint-Pierre

Jean-Louis Chanéac (1931—1993) decided to build his own residential house in Aix-Les-Bains, south-east of France where he wanted to see his children experience his own concepts of living. Completed in 1976, the house is situated on a very sloping land and metaphorically represents a bean pod. It harmoniously settles over the cliff and dynamic lines refer to the volumes of the surrounding mountains. The suggestive lines of the entrance door embrace visitors and take them inside a womb-like interior experience.
