1389 (10") Breton House Extension. Category 08: Urban Buildings
Marc Jamin: France
Designed as an extension for a typical house on the coast of Britanny, France, the main structure is based on a series of bamboo porticos connected with steel. A concrete chimney stabilizes the bamboo porticos from the oceans wind and a polycarbonate ceiling protects from the elements as the bamboo poles allow an ever-changing play of light to create a dynamic space.
