Situated alongside the Parc Bordelais, this 1930s townhouse has a large backyard shaded by century-old trees. The ground-floor service areas were relocated to the contemporary extensions, thus reserving the central, premium spaces to the living areas. To avoid the risk of an “architectural collusion”, two glassed-in breaks create a clean, unambiguous connection between the new and the old parts.
In the purest 1930s style, the façade is characterised by an abstract, geometric ornamentation.
Before/after on each level
The wood terrace extends the living room and highlights the façade’s unique window pattern.
The row of ground-floor rooms are now connected directly to the terrace and the backyard.
