  • biscuit-house-01.jpg
    Nature and beauty are always easily associated with France. This house is a testimony of this fact too. Designed by architect Pierre Minassian right outside a small village near the French town of Lyon is a house that is 23m x 7m parallelepiped, made of concrete, steel and glass. While concrete is used for the rood and flooring, steel is used in the framework of pillars and windows. Apart from this, he has designed an external curtain made of untreated exotic wood iroko. The wood curtain is the specificity of the house. It is composed of shapes that have been named ‘biscuits’. Apart from not allowing heat to enter and by creating a mirror effect between the curtain and the window pane, the wood curtain gives a look and feel of a traditional warm and cozy home.
