MAMOUT Architectes as Architects

The house is located in a street lined with typical 19th century twin worker houses. A local regulation requires that any new construction has to take over the traditional typology of small houses with pitched roof.

Our project plays with this regulation, respecting it fully while diverting it to create a surprising architecture.

The ground floor of the new construction, entirely glazed, hosts the new dining room and the kitchen, and can open widely toward the garden. Upstairs, an empty space on two levels, up to the pitched roof gives space to the dining room. Above the kitchen is the parents' room, with a large square shaped window, framing the garden.
