Sloping House is a makeshift shelter designed by Atelier 37.2 that clings to the side of an extinct volcano in the Puy de Serveix, in France’s Massif Central. Built from recycled timber by the artists themselves, this sculptural one-person refuge, seems to erupt from the grassy slope, as if the structure’s wooden planks are being flung out of the earth only to reform into the neat lines of an archetypal hut. On entering, you will be forced to crouch, as in a boat descending a wave. You will have the feeling of literally plunging into a skyless landscape and it is only when you seat yourself down on the strange, angular recliner within that the sky will reappear and you will experience the unique sensation of this peculiar vantage point.
