The Plongeoir by SPRAY Architecture

View all 16 Photos

The physical experience within the space of The Plongeoir lives up the its namesake, which is the French word for diving. Indeed, the architects at SPRAY Architecture have created movement within this shelter located in the fields of Muttersholtz, France that culminates to a feeling as if one were sidling up to the edge of a diving board. This transition of experience through the structure, which only touches the ground by means of thin wooden columns, helps create privacy for the individual but offers the inhabitant a generous vantage point. Just as how the space itself embodies a transformation, the façade is an ever-evolving piece of art, the designs on the wood accumulating and changing over the course of time.
