The project realizes a personalized alternative universe for the clients, two admirable eccentrics, passionate about art and Italian design of the 80s, designed in a collaborative spirit and a ludicization approach and then developed with architectural mathematical rigor. MEV exploits the association of geometries and colors under the impetus of the rebellious universe of the Italian group, Memphis, antithesis to monotony and the monochromatic architecture and design of its time.

For the sake of integration into surrounding nature, this house-studio, a place of life and work, both vibrant and free, reveals an organic form and a raw appearance, confronting its materials with a set of curved lines in a meticulous implementation. Its extravagance manifests itself in interiors with graphics, where volumes and materials develop in a sparkling chromatic organization. Playing with the possibilities of visual impact, the textures, colors, and materials exploit light in a kaleidoscopic reflection, while volumes and surfaces play games of formal opposition. Quintessence of the getaway in nature, the Laurentian forest welcomes the house-studio on a parcel of its territory that has remained out of reach, providing a place of life and work, both vibrant and free.
