renovation and extension of a house
© Laurent Brandajs
The young couple once lived in one house. As they have 4 budding boys and a few domestic animals, they felt the house was too small and acquired the one next door.
The project thus consisted in uniting the 2 houses. Both houses were built at the turn of the century. The front façades were left intact, respecting their historical typology. The façades do not reveal the expansive renovation.
Large parts of the dividing structural wall was removed. However, the typology of the existing houses was generally respected while taking advantage of its new width to offer generous & luminous spaces
