More than a simple building, the Douglas residency is an unified urban parcel, almost a little neighbourhood with a pathway, a garden, natural materials, atmosphere and conviavility. Those little buildings offer to each a private outside space and large bow windows.
Thermal insulation is reinforced by the use of wood structure. The alternating between wood and zinc on the facades make a subtle dialogue between materials and greenness of the gardens.
