    Chacun des bâtiments est traité en décalages et paliers afin d'épouser la déclivité naturelle du site et d'en conserver son caractère champêtre.


    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a suitable way to express "en décalages et paliers" - my impression is that each of the buildings is 'staggered', not uniform in shape.

    Is there a specific architectural term for this?

    Many thanks in advance,

    GG

    Hi,

    something using "terraces", perhaps?
