Chevalier Morales’ Residence de l'Isle: a perfect square

Residence de l'Isle is a reworking of modern American mid-twentieth-century homes, designed by Stephan Chevalier and Sergio Morales for a well-to-do couple with two children. The house stands on the bank of a river, and, in redesigning a structure dating back to seventy years ago, Chevalier and Morales maintained the building’s initial ecological footprint while replenishing the vegetation around it. The design of the home was based on a rational process which began with the square volume and sculpted out the spaces in response to the aesthetic, functional and structural requirements suggested by the project.
