Petite maison au bord du lac Léman, Corseaux, Switzerland

The archetype of Minimum Housing.

Component of the serial property inscribed on the world heritage list, 2016


The program: a house for two single persons, without domestics.

Region: eastern end of Lake Geneva; situated on a dominant hill at the lake shore; front view to the south.

Design procedure was contrary to normal practice: a plan was etablished - rigourous, functional, corresponding exactly to the program - a true machine for living. Then, plan in pocket, a suitable terrain was sought.

There is actually more sense in this method than may seem at first glance. In this tiny house of 650 ft.² there is a window 33ft. long and the reception area offers a perspective of 45 ft. Movable partitions and disappearing beds permit the improvisation of guest accommodations.
