Property description
Uzès sotheby's International Realty offers you a jewel of 20th century architecture. Classified as a historical monument, this true work of art is the reference for "bubble houses" in the world. Antti Lovag and Claude Haüsermann-Costy are the main protagonists of this architecture "liberated from the orthogonal shackles". Claude Haüsermann-Costy is the architect of the Maison Unal. This creation is part of the corpus of shell houses, the technique used is that of the "reinforced concrete veil" which allows the creation of custom-made envelopes that can be deformed at will. This non-conformist architecture is defined in three words: protection, comfort and aesthetics. The architect becomes a "Habitologist", inspired by the forms of nature and gives his creations rounded, soft shapes and generous curves. Each cell has a function, the home is born from the assembly of these modules in the form of bubbles or flattened spheres. Aerial tunnels link the private spaces and span the rocks. Oculi, oval windows and "skydomes" provide zenithal lighting and natural ventilation. This living sculpture now offers a living area of approximately 180 m² extended by terraces, as many bubbles to share meals, relax, fall asleep ... The furniture is an integral part of the creation, both in terms of its shape and its ingenuity. This bubble house is built around a circular stone slab where wheat was threshed, on a promontory based in the heart of 4110m² of woods, meadows and gardens. By becoming the owner of this exceptional house, you will be part of the most daring architectural movement of the 20th century.
