LRVO house extension
Vous architecture & design
In the Preux district, on the edge of Saint-Herblain, France, 1980’s identical houses line up, only distinguished by their pale colors.
在法國聖埃爾布蘭邊緣的 Preux 區，1980 年代一模一樣的房子排成一排，惟有以其蒼白的顏色而著稱。
Carefully placed above the garage, the LRVO extension takes
advantage of the orientation of the plot and extends the house toward the road, facing west.
A simple, one-piece volume, radically wrapped in wood cladding, on the walls as well as on the roof, dialogues with the pavilion. Like a sketch of an archetypal house, this new living space is part of the existing building through a fine dialogue with the current roof slopes.
Delicately placed on the garage, the project contrasts in its materiality, without however erasing the particular geometry of the pavilion which supports it.
Inside, VOUS also designed and built the furniture. A double height space fitted with a dressing acts as a hallway, leading to a bathroom facing south, and a bedroom on the other side. Shelves span the whole west wall, turning from a sink to shelves, to a desk, to shelves again, ending in a lecture spot, adjoining the bedroom window.
在內部，VOUS 還設計和製造了家具。 配有梳妝台的雙高空間充當走廊，通向朝南的浴室和另一側的臥室。 架子橫跨整個西牆，從水槽到架子，再到桌子，再到架子，最後是一個演講處，毗鄰臥室的窗戶。
On the upper floor, a roof window enlights a storage space that can be turned, one day, into a guest room or a reading salon.
