The project is located on the edge of the residential area of Mouzaia in the 19° arrondissement of Paris. This district, with its protected architectural heritage, is sensitive to changes. The work therefore focused on a discreet insertion into the urban landscape.
The existing facade is cleaned and isolated. The ground floor is refurbished to accommodate two artists’ studios. The first level is released from its lbearing walls to create an open living space. The attic is arranged and extended that can save space for shelter rooms and bathroom.
The extension of the attic is built with a wood frame for its lightness and limit nuisance in the neighborhood.
