Montpellier-based architectural practice, NB Architectes, has designed the Individual House project. Completed in 2013, the contemporary property is located in Montferrier sur Lez, France.

Situated in a pine forest on a steep plot, the first job for the architects was to create a stable environment for the modern home.

According to the architects: “Two axes marked two options in the site planning: Firstly, the accompaniment of the slope, in order to work on the establishment at regular level. Like terraces in the landscape, a journey consisted by Corten a steel sheet is created to accompany the arrival at home while building the landscape discovery. Then, the choice of the sequence was made.

“Rather than revealing the entire surrounding landscape, the choice was made to develop, in the house, a scenario that consists of several stories where each sequence presents a new discovery. Three built undulating bodies take place in the slope and stretch a little over the landscape. Interconnected by a simple entity, new spaces are made possible by the establishment of protected terraces and outdoor spaces.”
