Rehabilitate an old and dark houseBefore the works, the 18th century building, made of stone, between town and country, presented a decoration without charm, and small dark rooms badly distributed. It had a large shed, in poor condition with a roof and termite-damaged roof trusses. Identically recreated, this time it includes insulation by sandwich panels. Electricity and plumbing: everything had to be redone. The architect took the opportunity to install underfloor heating. The stones of the building needed to be cleaned and joined. They have been re-coated and the rest of the facade has been smoothed. Joinery, windows and French windows have also been replaced by anthracite gray aluminum. Finally, all the partitions, false ceilings and floors, in very poor condition, were demolished and rebuilt. This entire volume has been completely exposed, leaving only the front walls.
A stone building, in poor condition, but full of beautiful promises.
Larger volumes and maximum light
Large volumes, bathed in light, and full of charm.
The successful marriage of the ancient and the contemporary
A decoration around wood and metal, to combine old and modern.
A mezzanine to gain additional square metersAnother positive point to this transformation is to have considerably enlarged the surface of the house. First with the integration of the shed into the existing dwelling, an addition of more than 135m2, then with the construction of a mezzanine in the shed. With a metal structure and a wooden floor, the mezzanine hosts a workshop with a library and an office / guest bedroom. It also gives access to the first floor of the house part. Roof windows have been installed so that the light enters fully. The whole gives a crazy charm to the house. Result of the work? One year of work for a house with a total surface of 280m2, modernized and upgraded.
The wooden and metal mezzanine creates additional living space and a nice perspective.
