extension of a single-family house
The main part of this house was built in the 1940s with a few decorative elements of ‘art deco’ style, that didn’t give it any protected status but it did have a certain attractive look and did show a kind of attention that was intriguing. So the project became a good opportunity to experiment with creating decorative textures to accentuate the characteristic areas of the existing facades: around the windows, at the corners, under the roofline. The textures were created with a number of usual tools: a larger and a smaller broom, tile spreaders with different teeth, sponge etc.
The house was also extended with a new part for a large kitchen/dining area and two smaller bedrooms upstairs. This new part is covered mostly with locally produced fibercement tiles in a ventilated system. The tuned down color scheme enhances the house’s elegant ‘Scandinavian’ vibe.
