Bungalows traditionally only make use of a single storey, but 'South Coast of Landes House' is a bungalow that subverts the very definition by including an upper storey. To be sure, the French home is a bungalow, but its residents can nonetheless get a feel for the upper stratum by taking advantage of a ramp that leads up to a grassy lawn on the roof.

Though South Coast of Landes House has plenty of outdoor space surrounding it, the rooftop lawn offers a sunny patch that is perfect for hosting patio parties. The home itself is also attractive in its own right, with pleasing design features like a series of trellises made of red cedar and a built-in concrete basement that leads directly onto the riverside valley.
