Located at a rural area of Nantes, France, the Flake House is an experimental, prefabricated building made of natural wood. The house features an irregular fracture where it is actually broken in the middle, with no apparent reason which is highly unusual or even madness, hence the name ‘Folie en Bois’.
The exterior facade of the two blocks is made of logs, featuring small, random openings and a large glass wall at the end of each unit. The larger unit consists of a kitchen/dining and living room while the smaller unit is a washroom.
I love how the structure seems almost as if it’s torn in two, leaving a unique, circular pattern of wooden logs – A modern interpretation of the rustic log cabin with a contemporary, artistic feel.
