Housing suburban of Nancy, the houses are located 3m behind the dividing limits. The rear gardens are not used because of houses proximity. The project questions the urban constraint: densify these areas to open the houses on the gardens. Implantation as a separative boundary, opaque. Windows on garden. 12sqm on the ground, 12sqm of views. The facade is moved back to the plot boundary and becomes a piece of furniture; it is the kitchen. Between this furniture and the house, there is no longer any limit between interior and garden, the house opens. The 3m strip is now an integral part of the living space.
