Let’s be honest. We are two architects whose favourite activity, besides creating spaces, is experiencing them. So, one Friday afternoon we, disguised as architectural journalists, started a visit of Maison L – a very specific family house near Versailles. We took off in a car and reached Paris after 1237 km, 11 hours of driving and an overnight stop. We arrived just in time on Saturday at 3:00 pm to meet the architects Christian and Pascale from christian pottgiesser architecturespossibles (CPAP), at the service entrance, eager to enter. It was a bit surreal, so we were all laughing.
