Extension of an existing single-family house
Honest use of material and an affluent incidence of light are the connecting themes in the renovation of this terraced house.
An old rear building has made way for a new construction with space for a kitchen and dining room.
A covered terrace completes the building programme. A window as wide as the wall and light on the border between old and new bring in maximum light. A striking white kitchen wall and a kitchen island reflect the light and reinforce the spatial feel. That central detail in the room is surrounded by modest and honest materials: a polished concrete floor, wood for the roof, and a brick exterior wall which runs outdoors where, as it were, it embraces the terrace.
