Nestled in the meadow, La Petite Maison de 2M26 has nothing to do with the accommodation of Charles Ingalls and his family. A secondary residence lost in the countryside, the complex uses wood in a resolutely contemporary way. Back to a small building that has everything of a big one.
The “MA” project is first and foremost a family affair. The land, bought by those close to the architect in the early 2000s, was once a typical Vaucluse farmhouse blending into the landscape.

“Leaning against the hill”, the house signed LumiPod from the Lyon company LUMICENE is not blue like the one sung by Maxime Le Forestier but… round.

While it previously occupied the Palais de Rumine, the MCBA - Cantonal Museum of Fine Arts in Lausanne (Switzerland) now benefits from its own building, a monolith with brutalist overtones signed Barozzi-Veiga.
