In 1967, Jacques Couëlle (1902—1996) built a residential house for industrialist Jean-Jacques Goupil in a forest east in Chevreuse, west of Paris. The troglodyte-like house is situated on a standstone quarry and offers a breahtaking view. The architect opted for a rather sensual building plan with soft wall inclinations. The swimming pool is a central point organ to this house. From both floors, the house’s inhabitations can experience it through glass windows. This project was directed in parralel to his Castellaras-Le-Neuf commission.
