The previous house offered tiny opening to the garden. The “back” rooms, kitchen, bathroom, previously considered as services, blocked the views from the house to the nice garden. We decided to keep these functions but to open them widely, by creating large windows. The kitchen – dining room offers an large open view to the vegetation. The bathroom has focused view to the trees.

Using an architectural expression counterpointing the existing style, we wanted to reinforce the coexistence between modern and old. The steel by its delicacy and precision permits to create pure lines and deepness. To obtain this dynamic, the steel structure is integrated to the thickness of the floor, and one tiny column present the angle of the former construction.

Finally, the choice of the corten, as finishing, brings softness, deepness and answer to the vegetation, by expressing the time going.
