Commune house resembles small hill


Layers of grass, plants, herbs and flowers blanket the roof of a hump-shaped house which is part of a commune near Reims, France.

Created by architect Patrick Nadeau and named La Maison-Vague, which translates as Wave House, the project is one 63 experimental houses being built in a collective settlement called  Sillery and was designed with an arching profile to resemble the shape of a mound or hill.

Plants wrap around the east and west facades, primarily to provide thermal insulation but also to allow the house to fit in with its rural surroundings
