While in Poissy, my colleagues and I were tasked to document the Maison Louis Carré to a level of detail that could be referenced for years following our visit. When documenting the exterior, we divided and conquered. While some tackled elevations and began to document measurements of the architectural characteristics, myself with Katie Lamb and Kyle Johannes documented the precise landscape and its unique terracing.
After two and a half days, using a three point triangulation method, we calculated the positioning of the home on the land, the pool house in reference to the home, and the garage in reference to the pool house and the home; in addition, we calculated the slope of the land.
The uniqueness of the landscape was present upon arrival, but the detail and attention to minute placements became very clear following our documentation. The slope of the roof mimics the slope of the land in order to accentuate the view that the site follows.
