This home in eastern France offers a creative solution for extra space that has quickly become the highlight of the entire residence. Loïc Picquet Architects pushed a new glass-fronted volume out of the back wall of the home to create an airy dining room.
The addition features clean lines and textural modern materials, including a glazed wall, a concrete stairwell leading to the main living areas of the home and weathered timber siding. The new volume contrasts yet harmonizes with the traditional style of the old St. Louis home.
Protruding into the garden, this creative home extension brings more natural light into the house, enlarging the kitchen and acting as a transitional space between the interior of the home and the backyard. A small, operable rectangle in the glass acts as a window within the window.
