Week 7 – Eco-building in the Pyrenees, Inspiration in the Mountains

Posted on 12 July 2011

During week 7 of my eco-building adventure, we spent a few days visiting Pierre’s mountain house to get some fresh air, a break from work and see some of the design elements he implemented there. It was inspiring to see his designs and thoughts about space actually implemented (see the week 6 post for more about designing space).

This week I will simply share with you some images from the mountains and Pierre’s house and garden. He purchased an old house a decade ago and improved it substantially – essentially all by himself. As you look through the pictures, think about his use of space, the colours, the types of stairs, the simple, modest, effective use of natural materials and so on… altogether, the house offers a beautiful mix of rocks, natural plaster and wood.
