Montre-Oeuil by Atelier Florence Gaudin
The urban planning rules impose a heightening in continuity with the existent volume. Therefore, it appears a preferable to assume this continuity with the facade treatment. The choice of materials and colors brings a contemporary touch to the design. The black metal and window frame create a contrast with the original wood grain and color. Thus, the overall interior becomes warm and modern.
The generous volume with an elevation of six meters higher ceiling level is voluntary preserved. The boxes are thought as suspended “Wood Cabanas” at different levels. These boxes contain closed programs like water closet, a mezzanine bedroom and a play niche on the top.
The disposition of the volumes generates a playful course through the geometry of the boxes, offering four access levels and various framings. The space is evolutionary now and there’s a possibility to add a room on the ground floor.
