Text description provided by the architects. 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.
