Unconventional Cylinder House By Cyril Lancelin, Town And Concrete

Cyril Lancelin is a French architect and art director. After 15 years working for some of the most influential architects and artists in Paris and Los Angeles, Cyril Lancelin decided in 2016 to start his own creative studio, Town And Concrete, where he works on the habitat and their boundaries.
The ‘Cylinder House’ is located in the outskirts of Lyon nested into woodland and presenting a striking contrast to the natural environment.
The imagined dwelling is characterized by a single shape that has been repeated to form the structure: a cylinder. The series of tubes with glass cores form the open-plan interior. As there are no defined corridors, inside, the varying heights of the tubes have been used to establish the partitioning between each space. On the outside, the house appears as a cluster of cylinders to form the undulating and transparent envelope.
Cyril Lancelin: ‘This system of cylinder juxtaposition allows to enlarge the house but also to have a blurred outer delimitation of the house with its context’.
