Project Description

The project is the extension of a 17th century, damp and dark, townhouse in masonry. As the client lived mostly alone in a large house, he imagined dividing and selling half to finance a wooden extension covered in black.

This black block, in the style of a painting by Soulage, was conceived as an absolute contrast with the existing one, favoring the lightness and the structural fineness of wood and steel. It also catches the light coming from all sides with corner windows, and controls it with canvas blinds.
