“Architecture is an imagined reality where the voices and comments suggest some time deaf” Melvin Charney. A significant atypical approach to the architect because it’s your own home: young family who want to live together in a house built on a tight budget, and most friendly environment possible. The site is the former garden of a house built in 1960, on a quiet street in a old town that became residential, on the outskirts of the city of Tours, France.
A longitudinal field perpendicular to the street enclosed on three sides (east, north and south) houses very close. Blocking the view implies the obligation to comply with 3 mt of estrangement. On the west side is an existing shed in the east, a path runs alongside the house to the back garden, then lying in 60m x 15.5 m on one side, the north, a twentieth century house and micaceous chalk to the south, a recent volume of masonry.
The house is installed in the last third of the land, Thereby releasing front of the house a vast surface of fruit trees existing. This will work as a buffer zone with the neighbors. The house is inspired in the field; no formal gestures. It is part of what is ordinary, boring, no way to end on something a bit special, using the cheapest accepting standard size timber, foundations and floor. The whole house, consisting of 8 pre-assembled wood panelsWas transported on a trailer, requiring only 2 days on-site assembly.
The openings are designed in accordance with the guidance and views: Vertical windows of the rooms allow you to view the garden without being seen, the top window that faces the south than the height of the neighboring houses to catch the sun, etc. The design principle is very simple and is related to the interior, where the natural and power structure. On the ground floor and first level, the central pillar is reached 2 permeable walls separating spaces, Creating the effect of screen, and kinetic effects sets of natural and artificial light. This joint is reinforced by the position of the ladder and the stove.
The foreign elements are repeated within the limits spread The galvanized metal staircase echoes the wood exterior shutters and interior are the leftover siding. The sliding metal shutters act as solar and wind protection, Transforming the landscape into pixels and making the interior more inviting. Downstairs are the service areas (kitchen, laundry and bathrooms) and on the upper level bedrooms and bathrooms. The living areas are divided into rooms by wooden panels and for different lighting environments: The living is high, open to the outside, the room is more intimate, to 2.26 m in height and frame the views to the east. The hall is relatively dark, to accentuate the overhead light that accompanies the stairs.
The games room at the top level is the more intimate second room of the house voluntarily and indefinitely: storage units divide this space according to their uses (Game room, storage, guest, lounge, TV room, etc). The wide range of uses is a purpose related to the emotional, “In the morning looking for my own things with my daughter’s toys.”
