French architect Loïc Picquet set up his practice in Altkirch, near the Swiss and German borders, in 2012. He focuses his designs around three elements: responding to a building's needs according to its locale and history, working with an open plan, and choosing the right materials. Recent work includes the Maison L, a minimalist two-storey house made of larch wood sited on a hill in the architect's home town.
