Young practice Studio 1984 have realized the “Nest”, a small pavillion for the Archi<20 competition, built in a protected natural area in Muttersholtz, in France’s Alsace region. In search of the architecture of the lesser impact, the “nest” is largely inspired by agricultural vernacular constructions. Its familiar shape and texture pay homage to traditional barns and are an attempt at restoring their discreet charm.

This pastoral imagination dictates the choice of local materials widely available such as straw and wood, the environmental impact of which are virtually nil. The reference to rural heritage far from generating an archaic habitat is the support for technical innovations in terms of comfort, ambiance, and energetic efficiency. The landscape integration’s effort logically leads to reinterpret several vernacular proven techniques. The “nest” is also a reflection on the transiency of constructions. Indeed, if the building may seem quite massive, most of its materials are totally renewable.
