The house is positioned with one gable facing the street and one towards fields and barns, hiding its transition from brick to iron. The front gable is affixed to a neighbouring house and is constructed in perforated red brick to match the existing streetscape, while its back pays homage to the region’s agricultural buildings and is clad in dark corrugated iron.

The project proposes to join together the two regionalistic typologies of the villages of the north of France. The materiality of the frontage, seen in public space is made out of brick, in agreement with materials of neighbouring constructions, The materiality of the frontage on the cultivated grounds, made out of corrugated iron, echoes with the agricultural hangars.

The building’s asymmetric pitched roof is also covered in sheets of corrugated iron, which are slightly recessed from the cladding so as to go undetected from the street.The perforated bricks are laid in all the possible way, no cut bricks on the street facade.Both the floors of the two-storey house are segmented by its timber frame into four sections, each serving a different function.

At ground level these form a sitting room, hallway, kitchen and utility space, while upstairs the quadrants are filled by two bedrooms, a bathroom and an atrium overlooking the lounge.

Sections of bricks on the front facade are spaced apart, creating two long, narrow strips with a pattern of rectangular gaps that offer glimpses of the street while preserving privacy for residents.

While the front of the house appears to have minimal openings, its side and back walls feature large, unobstructed windows and glazed doors that open towards a garden and the adjacent fields.
