From the architect. The house is located in a central district of Bordeaux and occupies the maximum surface area authorized by town-council planning regulations. It is a parallelepiped with a façade of 8 metres, a length of 13 metres and a height of 6.5 metres. The central part of this volume is empty and linked to the street by a porch that shelters the parking area.

This empty space is designed to allow natural lighting and ventilation of all rooms despite the compactness of the house. Views through the patio to the rooms and passages of both floors make perception of it more complex and interesting. It also becomes an additional outside room when the weather is fine.

The façades have openings with different characteristics depending on their location: French windows with metal balconies installed on the street side, sliding frame with glazed apron on the patio and garden sides, windows for smaller rooms, sliding frames on the ground floor around the patio and access to the garden.

The house is entirely constructed in coated masonry, the joinery is in aluminium and the floors in synthetic resin.

Looks like a child drew a courtyard house. I love simplicity but this is just inept.

squidly · February 26, 2010 08:02 PM

How is it inept?

patient soul · February 26, 2010

so here we see a decent house which attracts to its simplicity and two gentlemens fighting each other .. one means to say that the other gets aroused to the dramatic dressup of a hooker .. and dosent feel the passion of simplistic beauty .. but the other cant change ..its his nature .. and thats all bring 'im different ' thing in us bravo u two

4 me the design is bent on proving few things

1) living together
2) living with the nature
3) living good without excessive expenditures
4) maintaining well, what you can ! with just your earning than mortgage

hope this is also a part of every dwellings planned 4 which a artitect is ever called up not just 2 share his bling bling ..

ne wayz i like this post as it inspires me a lot .. of a money worthy dwelling .. hope im not hurting .. pplzz who have exotic tastes ..

A well done, simple urban house lacking in the bullsit usually required to be "noticed". i find its straightforwardness refreshing and disagree completely with the comment about the facade. The composition, with large opening pushed off into the corner, disrupts an expected symmetry set up by the upper level windows and allows for the horizontal window below, which imparts a quiet dynamism in proportion with such a small project.

to squidly: Francine Fort get out this body!!

Zane · February 25, 2010

The street elevation is terrible, very little attention to proportion and rectilinear relationships make the street facade bland, and of no energy.

Is this that interesting to be shown here ??

uyyu · February 25, 2010 09:25 PM

NO, it's not.

Mad · February 25, 2010 01:30 AM

I like it - a lot. The combination of natural light and open, outdoor privacy is something you don't see all that often in small houses. Were it not for an arthritic hip that makes going up and down stairs a pain (literally), I'd certainly live in it.

The answer is NO.
