This elevation of a suburban pavilion in R + 1 and attic has allowed the creation of 2 independent apartments. The particularity of this collective housing is to be able to access it – obviously – by an external access but also via an internal staircase communicating between the two apartments.

Strong points

  • Rehabilitation of the existing facades, thermal insulation from the outside
  • Lightweight elevation (wooden frame) to avoid underpinning the existing building
  • Work on facade openings, natural lighting
  • Relationship between the two apartments modifiable by the occupants
  • Unification of the image of the building (rehabilitated and new) although their imprint remains identifiable (different color)
