Private Residence in Sorède, France
This home designed for the architect’s father, takes its inspiration from the ancient Greek megaron, one of the earliest spiritual buildings. Its structure, open on one side, traditionally directs attention to a mount or other sacred location. The design derives from a nine square grid plan, where the southern ‘missing square’ becomes the ‘Urban Room’, in the typology of a traditional Mediterranean villa where all functions are set around a central patio.
