The House Between by Clément Bacle Architect

French architect based in Nantes, Clement Bacle realized this house in the city of Rennes in France.

Clément Bacle‘This project is for the sister of the existing house to retire. It comprises on the ground floor, a small kitchen, a tv room or a guest room and a bathroom. And a bedroom and a bathroom upstairs. The total area is 65m2.’

‘The template of the house is identical to the existing one. It take these characteristics including the pitched roof slates in typical Breton houses. Both houses are connected to the floor by a space “in-between” common. This canopy black aluminum joinery facing east and west diffuses light throughout the day. Three glass plates pierce the upstairs floor as for the view that for the light.’

‘The frame and wood frame house on a concrete slab provides flexibility in implementation. Wood siding reminiscent of those barns Breton; it is stained black Douglas French origin finely sawn 200mm wide glulam.’

‘Berries black aluminum joinery on the ground floor are all heights. Upstairs, the two dormers clad with stainless steel give personality to the whole. Soils are treated painted concrete on the ground floor, parquet hardwood upstairs and triply painted for the canopy. A dual-door wooden can be isolated in the guest room. This house preserves the exceptional green setting of this space in the city center while providing a very bright and comfortable home.’
