Chestnuts House – Image 01 of 10
Auvergne, France | maison individuelle | 2016 | maîtrise d’ouvrage privée | 360 m²
The new house is set in order to maintain the volumetric balance between the existing buildings on the west side of the courtyard: façade proportions, height and materials are translated from the facing building. New house is a contemporary architecture shaped from traditional habitat. The pitched metallic roof is asymmetrically designed in order to dialogue with the courtyard on the west and to recall the demolished building on east side.
