The Arman house begins first by a crazy idea and ends like something concrete with the help of the architect Guy Rottier. After his graduation Guy Rottier works with Le Corbusier and open his own research consultancy in Paris (1955) and after his architect office in Nice (1969). He will be the only architect integrating the famous School of Nice where he will meet the plastician Arman. Potent member of that School Arman wants to own a house downstairs of a land belonging to his father without hidding the watch on the sea. Arman attract himslef with the burried houses and desires that the specialist of the post Le Corbusier houses build the house. Guy Rottier gives the order to dig and amphitheater downstairs the land for making a half burried house in one level. The dinner room is situated in the middle and the sleeping rooms with the cellar stay at the extremities. The kitchen and the bathroom find themselves in the intermediate area. Minimal walls separate the rooms and the light (windows, mirrors, lightning) extend the space and also disturb the perspective.
