Château de la Bourdaisière gives us the opportunity to link a historic and cultural place with contemporary life. «Le Château Ambulant» questions the flexibility and maneuverability of the wood material by manipulating the typology of the individual dwelling.
The project generates a progressive field of vision on the forest, as to better integrate itself into the external environment. In the thick shell, a fluid space offers a variety of spatial configurations to reinvent everyday gestures. Materiality of the house makes it possible to negotiate the boundary between the inside and the outside.
