Ar. Cyril Lancelin imagined a futuristic and distinctive residential design near Lyon, France. What makes the design of the house differ from others is the single shape cylindrical structure. The cylinder house is designed to fit amid the trees. The design plan is based on a juxtaposition of a simple element, a cylinder. This cylinder can be opened, semi-open, closed making it an open plan. This house does not have corridors or windows; there is a play of height offset on the cylinders to also provide delimitation by the height of the ceilings. The furniture marks space, but its movement can reinvent the house. On the outside, the house appears as a cluster of cylinders to form the undulating and transparent envelope. This system of cylinder juxtaposition allows to enlarge the house but also to have a blurred outer delimitation of the house with its context.
