The desire to live in a log house is a gesture towards creating a cosy environment in which living values are preserved.

A Log House, A Way Of Life

“The desire to live in a log house is a gesture towards creating a cosy environment in which living values are preserved. It’s part of a harmonious and healthy lifestyle in contact with nature, with strong values and life principles that promote health and wellbeing, such as sport, healthy nutrition and a balanced life.

How do you preserve all the positive effects of natural wood in a construction? This is where my job as an architect begins. This question was at the heart of my work when I made my home a laboratory where I could implement constructive reflexes in accordance with the properties of massive wood.


The result today is a contemporary and sober architecture without limitation, whose foundations are based on simple gestures and a capacity to focus on the essential.”
