House on the roof

“I dream of reclaiming the Paris rooftops: faced with a lack of housing, building cabins in secret recesses of the capital would be magic!”, Maud Caubet.

Nestled between two buildings overlooking a landscape of zinc roofs, the “Maison sur le toit” allows you to see without being seen and creates magic. Through a bending process, zinc can be used to open up patios, gardens and interiors with no borders with the city. Inside, plywood is again the single material for floors, walls and ceilings to create this suspended cabin. Structural weightlessness and modularity are the watchwords.
