Located in a Conversation Area in Vincennes, France, NAME Architecture uses a contemporary approach to brick extends a family house. The Brick House Extension is 80 m2 in size and it sits along a beautiful forest on the outskirts of Paris. The house shape is articulated through the use of a single material: brick.
It is a compact extension that houses three functions: a dining area, kitchen, and parking area. There is also a creative studio for the owner to provide a comfortable space to find more inspirations. This family house is also unique because it is designed with the use of one material only.
The original house has strong features that are extended in the design of this jewel-like shape. This way is done in a play with material and formal continuity. The shape is carved by local regulations and articulated through the use of a single material: brick. This material is used to generate all house’s surfaces while the lines of the house can retain a trace on some new additions.
