The black box is a contemporary archetype of the hut, a characteristic silhouette, where people come to experience the place and landscape.
The space of the black box is the space of intimacy, of the withdrawal, in which the essential functions are found to relax, sleep, work, eat. This little box is easily transportable and represents the minimum habitation, the hut of our childhood, the place where we hide to meet personally …
A skin surrounds the box, light, transparent, flexible and moving. This is the protective space, a filter with the surrounding world, nature, landscape.
Because the real space is one that is around, that we choose to relax or be inspired, without time limit. Whether on the water, in the forest or in urban context, the black box and his second skin take place gently in the landscape without disturbing it.
The black box looks at the landscape, the black box is landscape.
