A Saint-Hilaire-Du-Rosier, near Saint-Marcellin Isère, the architectural firm L'Autre Fabrique has transformed the old house into a house for a young couple. The unassuming street facade, space is fluid and contemporary and the wide side garden.
On this project, "The Other Manufactures" says:
"After more than a year to find a building plot to make a contemporary home, this young childless couple finally opted for the restructuring of a house, inherited from a grandmother and uninhabited for some years in St. Hilairedu-Rosier, near Saint-Marcellin (Isère). Located in the town center, along the old national between Grenoble and Valence, this house on three levels, however, had a large garden quiet at the back.
All real estate at the street consisted of two adjoining houses met. The project was therefore to create a unique space that make you forget the previous aggregation chaotic and generously open to the rear at sunset and free of noise.
The rear façade has been completely reorganized: growths 40s were demolished to recover alignment with adjoining houses. Slightly raised, a new facade in wood frame pierced with large windows offset gives the contemporary cachet sought by sponsors. The use of horizontal wood siding is a discreet wink to dryers nuts and tobacco typical of this region of southern Isère.
Bounded on the right by former pig shed and left with a new boundary wall, the wide wooden deck that extends the living area to the outside is well maintained terraced views. Above the pig shed, now used for storage, a second terrace accessible from the master bedroom, can enjoy more time the last rays of sun. The inner volume is organized around a big gap flanked by a staircase with cantilevered treads were made voluntarily left rough brushed steel. On the ground floor, the living space is entirely free. The kitchen is open the double volume height stretches to a front side of the house. The central island houses the washing area and serves bar while the cooking area is extended by deeper cabinets incorporating laundry.
Upstairs a mezzanine plunging on the central vacuum makes the link with the party night. The floor joists on the original wood has been preserved in this area. The owners have deliberately opted for a single room but spacious bathroom, directly accessible from the dressing room to the master bedroom and from the clearance for the guest room. As in the attic, he was isolated and will be a slice of future work.
The choice of paints and flooring contributes to the harmony of the whole and varies from black semi matte in the guest toilet, with sandy tones or chocolate living spaces. On the floor, the ceiling clearance "powder pink"-dixit-owner enhances all and turns as a unifying ribbon.
The energy improvement work was funded by an eco-interest loan. They consisted of the installation of joinery larch 4/16/4 double glazing, a device dubbing all the walls and attic, and a heater powered by a Ground Floor eau.plancher heat pump heating air supplied by an air pump water heat. "
