Every year at Verana, we improve and redesign our mosquito net. Maybe next year we should try this: a house that is a mosquito trap?!! French Architects, Roche and Stephanie Lavaux of R & Sie
, designed Mosquito Bottleneck, a 130 square-meter house that serve as mosquito trap in the Jungle of Trinidad.

The house mirrors surrounding patterns of twisted tree growth and also accepts, into its thickened architectural skin, the fierce mosquitoes which threaten and preoccupy people in tropical regions.

Roche and Lavaux, his partner since 1993, form the Paris-based architecture practice of R & Sie… Pronounced in French, the letters read “hérésie,” or “heresy” in English. (The three dots mean that they are open to new partners joining the firm.) V.L
