Designed as a temporary residence for an oyster farmer, French firm Raum Architects have created a simplistic structure based upon an acute attention to detailing and material selection.

Conceived as a system with multiple configurations, the house is composed of two main areas: a hangar, and an office/lounge space which hosts a kitchen, dining room, and seating area. Acting as a buffer between the two zones is an ample-sized patio space, which has the option of being either open or closed off to the house and the exterior. Circumscribed in a series of sliding glass doors, the patio space can act as a light well to brighten up the interiors even when it is shut off from the outside. A large window to the east provides views of the surrounding scenery while providing flexible seating with a wide framing structure. A single wood space heater heats the entire wooden structure.
