Chantre is characterized by the paths fluidity and the harmonious and symbiotic relationships between the building and the garden. The street leads to the house in an apotheotic way, which is reinforced by a monumental entrance with a modern approach. Strongly geometric, the volumes are articulated from the entrance cylinder, as if it were a patella. Through a dance between shapes, lines, alignment, and walls, the house perfectly articulates old and modern elements, in a poetry of references.
