Boomerang House \ Trévelo & Viger-Kohler architectes (TVK)

• February 15, 2011

Trévelo & Viger-Kohler architectes (TVK) has designed the Boomerang House located in Sèvres, France.

+ Project description by Trévelo & Viger-Kohler architectes

The Maison de Sèvres sits on a parcel of exceptional character. It is a square garden, 22 meters on each side, invisible from the street, but that one discovers with surprise at the end of a narrow path. The disposition of the house in this context is as an abstract form; the square is divided in two on the diagonal, one side holds the garden, and the other the house that faces almost directly west, looking towards the wooded hillsides of the city of Meudon.

This simple figure inscribes the house and the garden in one inseparable relationship. This relationship is further complicated and enriched by the organization of the layout: porch, balcony, and patio are arranged in an interlocking manner and assure an interaction between the two entities.

The window design also takes part in this search for an exclusive relationship with the exterior environment. Each room defines a particular geometry for the window, conceived here as an intelligent and comforting object which frames the countryside and filters the sunlight.
