The project unfolds the transformation of a structure designed for a stag in a home for a young family. The challenge was to propose a type of intervention that reduces, through elimination, the existing structure to its volumetric essence and, later, to add functions and their corresponding volumes in the same spirit. The house thus becomes an 'apparatus' that mediates the transition from public space and public life to private space and public life being defined by the two main facades. The relation with the street is mediated by a facade dominated by a dent announcing the entrance... a ‘carved’ entrance with the purpose of announcing the warmth of the house. The relationship with the garden is mediated by a glazed facade that transforms the living-room in an extension of the garden and vice versa.
The interiors revolve around the ample living-room, a space that unfolds on two stories and thus intermediates the dialogue between the ground floor and the second floor as well as between the house and the garden. They are defined and dominated by large planes whose colors and textures draw from the nature of the finishings.
