Contemporary Mountain Home, 2014

Les Rousses, Jura 39 France


This astonishing contemporary home is embedded in the side of a hill. It was built by the agency JDS Architects, author of the famous Holmenkollen ski jump in Oslo. At a 5 hours by car from Paris, 30 minutes from the Vallorbe TGV station and 40min from Geneva airport. Backed by the Risoux mountains, it overlooks the Orbe valley in the vast ski resort of Les Rousses near the Swiss border. Its inhabitants will be able to enjoy many winter and summer activities (cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, ice skating, hiking, trail running, roller skiing, cycling, canoeing, etc.). The house has a living area of 113 mì on two levels. The upper level hosts a beautiful 45 m/2 reception with triple orientation, consisting of a lounge area, a dining area and an open kitchen. It is extended at the front by a 20m/2 terrace overlooking the valley, and at the back by a second terrace in the large garden sheltered by tall firs and pine trees. The lower level, more intimate, houses the entrance, the 3 bedrooms open, two bathrooms with walk-in showers and a cellar. On a plot of approximately 1.390mì, a 45mì green terrace on the roof of the house offers a 360› panoramic view over the beautiful surroundings. The concrete-clad lines of the house rise from the ground into harmonious curves and merge into the slope of the ground.
