Project description: The challenge of this project was about transforming the place and giving it a new life, then orienting it towards the park to create a dialog and unify it to make it visible. The goal was to tell a story and provide an unusual break in the landscape.
A cloud is anchored on the house. It is now still and part of the landscape. This floating object covers the terrace and puts the building in the scenery.
The aim is to bring a symbolic object into the park. To create an inviting call visible from far away. The cloud here acts as a revisited familiar poetic object. It brings materiality to the intangible. Usually constantly moving, this cloud becomes a landmark. The ephemeral becomes permanent.
