The residence is positioned with 1 gable dealing with the street and one in the direction of fields and barns, hiding its transition from brick to iron.

The front gable is affixed to a neighbouring house and is constructed in perforated red brick to match the present streetscape, whilst its back pays homage to the region’s agricultural buildings and is clad in dark corrugated iron.

Like the corrugated metal extension Graal Architecture added to a nursery college near Paris, this option of material is made to distinguish parts of the creating from its surroundings.

“The project proposes to join collectively the two regionalistic typologies of the villages of the north of France,” said Lamarche and Chabert.

“The materiality of the frontage, observed in public room is manufactured out of brick, in agreement with components of neighbouring constructions,” they added. “The materiality of the frontage on the cultivated grounds, produced out of corrugated iron, echoes with the agricultural hangars.”

The building’s asymmetric pitched roof is also covered in sheets of corrugated iron, which are somewhat recessed from the cladding so as to go undetected from the street.

At ground degree these form a sitting room, hallway, kitchen and utility room, while upstairs the quadrants are filled by two bedrooms, a bathroom and an atrium overlooking the lounge.

Sections of bricks on the front facade are spaced apart, making two prolonged, narrow strips with a pattern of rectangular gaps that supply glimpses of the street while preserving privacy for residents.

Whilst the front of the home appears to have minimum openings, its side and back walls function large, unobstructed windows and glazed doors that open in direction of a backyard and the adjacent fields.

Much less than 10 miles away in the city of Lille, architect Emmanuelle Weiss extra a contrasting dark brick extension to a red brick home, assisting to distinguish outdated elements of the framework from the new.
