This project entailed the extension of a single-family home by adding a room on the first floor at the back of the house and increasing the living spaces on the garden level.
These two modifications were integrated as a light construction in wood with the external cladding extended up to the cornice of the roof to also cover the second floor, thereby providing the rear façade with a new unified expression of materials.
The play on volumes on the rear façade fits in with that of the adjoining houses. To optimise the interior space of the new bedroom on the first floor, the plans took into account the daylight and the view over the neighbouring garden. The proposal was to retract further back than the permitted limits next to this property. This proved to be the optimal solution for perfect integration. This work to integrate with the existing properties coupled with a light construction system based on natural materials incorporating high-quality insulation and rainwater harvesting, will help improve the built environment in terms of sustainability.
