House Extension in Nantes, France by Avignon-Clouet Architectes

 
February 9th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

A long wooded corridor lined with services (laundry, bathroom, dressing, toilets) leads to panoramic bedrooms overhanging the garden, via two hidden stairs. Between these two volumes is inserted a room opened outwards. To create the interface with the current house, the new volume is completely glazed. It  gives the impression of a levitating architecture that wouldn’t dare resting on the ground of this limited landscape area.

But most of all, the extension of this raised ground floor flat, from a 19th century’s building, is an exploit! Indeed, the access between the street and the garden was unthinkable with a narrow corridor ending in square angle and a partly buried extension . Without the strong will of the architect and the builder to take up the challenge, this project would never have emerged.
