Town house EMEdit profile
By a set of subtle surfaces, the front facade is struggling to blend into the template of the street. It balances between integrating and standing out. Inside a continuous open space made of large and generous rooms, connected to each other by some unexpected views creates a compressed urban-like space.
A “canyon” of light allows to create a dinstinction between the living spaces and the bedrooms while extending itself to the ground floor through a void which receives the staircase.
The traditional spaces of a house are put together here into a single organic space with raw finishing such as a concrete grid on the ceiling and the prominent interior brick wall.
A difference of level on the ground floor creates a smooth transition between the street and the back of the house which is ended with a longitudinal garden.
Through precise openings and a terrace in extension of the living room, the boundaries between inside and outside in this townhouse are fading.
