House in Schuttrange

Rodolphe Mertens Architects as Architects

With this project, the client initially hoped it could reshape a relationship on the brink of divorce by providing it a new ground, and by centering it around the children while the parents could live autonomously. Considering that he would live in the house for a period of 10 to 15 years - the kids would be independent then - the client came with three criteria that for him that would still be relevant then: that it should be built in solid timber, that it should be designed considering mobility for disabled people, and that it should integrate passive housing standards while avoiding too much strains on the way of living. The house takes advantage of the oddly shaped site and of regulations, to Taking advantage of the oddly shaped site and of regulations, the house takes the shape of a pentagon, with two main autonomous zones revolving around the living area and a patio partly opened to the garden and to the view of a nearby basin. The house is spread on one level, with three boxes popping out of the roof, one for the kids’ rooms, with mezzanines for sleeping area, one for storage above the garage, and one for the father’s room, above his office.
