Villa La Calypso La Fossette

The Outside

Green Roof

The Villa Calypso displays a flat roof which reaches out beyond its retaining walls, a typical architectural feature of André LEFEVRE. Those are parapets on the sides of the roof carrying 50 cm of soil which stays cool in summer and absorbs winter rainfalls, an ideal environment for small plants to grow on the roof all year round
