It was to be a private project, a retreat from the everyday life of the two Air France pilots. You have lent a hand everywhere. 10 for years. They worked, hammered, drilled, toiled.

The story Lionnel tells us sounds surreal. There we are, hopelessly lost in this gigantic inner courtyard and cannot believe what they have created. 10 Years of work. That sounds so damn long that we wonder how anyone can last for such a long time.
