Chalk House

Like many towns, the French town of Besan├žon upholds a dominant style of architecture, uniquely characterized by locally abundant stone found in the Chailluz quarry.┬áThe rows of similar houses blend into one another forming a homogeneous landscape. Here the use of colourful chalks have allowed one house to momentarily break out of the uniform aesthetic, whilst retaining its local heritage. The chalk facade lets the house speak out, separating itself from the others in a colourful display of independence.
