tectone crafts a monolithic concrete volume for a residential renovation in france

paris-based architecture firm, tectone, renovated and extended an existing house in malakoff, in the parisian suburbs, which resulted in the contemporary ‘maison v’. the architects started out with a two-level existing house with a brick facade, and a tile roof, located between an avenue and a private road. due to its particular orientation, its smallest facade overlooks the avenue, resulting in a unique long, narrow project.

tectone was tasked to expand the house to be able to accommodate either a family or a group of active young people. so they added two levels around a staircase, hosting three additional bedrooms, one new bathroom, an open space with a living room and a kitchen and a playroom. the structure of the extension is made of steel, independent of the existing building. the facades are made up of a wooden sub-structure, aluminum windows, and is insulated from the outside.

the monolithic and massive façade was clad in viroc plates, a composite material consisting of a mixture of wood particles and cement. tectone also covered the existing part of the building with the same viroc plates giving a sense of unity to the whole project. the architects broke the volume in geometric angles, allowing a better integration between the avenue and the private road with the surrounding urban fabric.
