STEINMETZDEMEYER: maison prijot

‘maison prijot’ by STEINMETZDEMEYER in luxembourg – gasperich all images courtesy STEINMETZDEMEYER

luxembourg-based architecture studio STEINMETZDEMEYER has sent us images of their project, ‘maison prijot’, an extension to a modest house from the early 20th century in the periphery of luxembourg city. the design is a result of satisfying both the client’s need for enlargement and the local urban regulations.

taking the existing geometry of the roof as a point of departure, the extension’s shape and volume were sculpted to form a new expression and coherence to the house. clad in silver-grey wood paneling, the surface gives a new rhythm to the facade, which is broken up with punched-out windows framed in black steel. the ground level of the extension features large floor-to-ceiling glazing that opens up the interior to the garden and patio space outside.
