MAISON PERCHÉE is an inconspicuous house built around the Appalachian Mountains where the owners will find panoramic views facing the mountainous landscape. The cottage has a sloping silhouette, respectively one angle of the roof is lower and its atypical shape is lined with a wooden facade of vertically directed boards. „Perched on the edge of an escarpment, the modest retreat is set on a small plateau of limited dimensions.“ Large windows adapting to the sloping building form a large part of the house, thanks to which nature blends beautifully with a simple interior. An inconspicuous fireplace connects the glazed living area and dining area with a smaller terrace. The master bedroom is located behind a large terrace which is the center of the whole house. „Integrated terraces amalgamate interior and exterior.“ In the part where the roof is the highest there is a children’s or guest room. The interior is a reflection of a perfect minimalist style where designers have given importance to quality rather than quantity.
