A la Caserne Mellinet,
In the Saint-Herblain neighboorhood, 1980's houses line up, only distinguished by their pale colors. Carefully placed above the garage, a wooden block extends the house toward the road, facing west.
Initially blind, the gable wall, now extruded, opens up on the garden, letting light pass through the 5 windows. To connect the existing building with its extension, roofs show similar pitches, while facades plays a subtle game of oblique lines.
Inside, VOUS also designed and built the furniture ! A double height space fitted with a dressing act as a hallway, leading to a bathroom facing south, and a bedroom on the other side. Shelves span the whole west wall, turning from a sink to shelves, to a desk, to shelves again, ending in a lecture spot, adjoining the bedroom window. On the upper floor, a roof window enlight a storage space that can be turned, one day, into a guest room or a reading salon.
