Shake - The Head and the Heart
Even if it was a mistake
I can’t forget your face
Even if it was just a day
You won’t forget the man
Who’s making you shake
The heart is not like a box that gets filled up; it expands in size the more you love. I’m different from you. This doesn’t make me love you any less. It actually makes me love you more.
Pascal Flammer created this timber house in Balsthal. There are two principal floors; one set 75 cm below the earth, one 1.50 m above. The ground floor consists of one single family room with a noticeably low horizontal ceiling. In this space there is a physical connection with the nature outside the continuous windows.
The space above is the inverse. This floor is divided into four equal rooms with 6m high ceilings. The height defines the space. Large windows open to composed views of the wheat field. Whereas the ground floor is about connecting with the visceral nature of the context, the floor above is about observing nature – a more distant and cerebral activity.
Dream house / imagine turning one floor into a giant studio with paper and books and pencils everywhere.
René Gérin (French, 1862-1895), “L’été”.
