      Text description provided by the architects. Bordeaux, Chartrons’ area. On the street front, a limestone building. On the back lot, a silk screen printing workshop. The order was to renovate and raise the two storey building, creating two dwellings and one shared ground between the workshop and the housing.

      Three Spaces for Three Functions

      The building’s groundfloor is divided in two main parts : the common space / private access and the garage / public access to the workshop. In the courtyard, a single stairway serves the upper floors of both dwellings and printshop. For an intuitive sharing, a subtle variation of the ground material delineates the nominated areas. Freed  from the interior circulation, everyone benefits of extra spaces. In the metal growth, the flat expands on two floors, making good use of an attic space relieved of traditional woodframe.

      The extension, composed of a wooden structure and zinc scales, relies on the existing stonework. Locally, zinc scales were used to protect the west gablewall. The material create a bridge between the historic context and the contemporary extension, used to create a continuous skin from the street to the courtyard. As if something precious was embedded in a raw stone, the small addition reflects the surroundings, producing a moving spectrum of colours day and night.
