Cube architectes : Maison de ville à Montreuil

Give a second life to a habitat? Bought for the Cube architects agency that rehabilitates a townhouse in Montreuil (93) to make a bright and uncluttered housing. Visit an interior where it is now good to live.

Founded in 2013 by Benjamin Exbrayat, Cube Architects is a Paris-based architectural firm that works on various projects, from furniture design to building rehabilitation, to the construction of collective housing. In Montreuil, the firm brilliantly realizes the requalification of a detached house.

The renovation of this individual dwelling consisted of the extension and elevation of the house. In order to create a harmonious set of 100 square meters, the rehabilitation carried out by Cube Architects is organized around the two already existing facades: one overlooking the impasse and that of the garden.
On the impasse side, the facade - a homogeneous perforated volume - resumes the layout of the initial openings to unify the elevation and the old building, originally arranged on one level on the ground floor.
On the garden side, the facades are adorned with a stained concrete coating and have large windows overlooking the garden, leaving natural light to illuminate the living rooms throughout the day.

Inside, the spaces have been arranged according to the overall volumetry of the set and include functional storage units. On the ground floor are the kitchen, the living room and the dining room, all gathered in the same entity. The elevation has two bedrooms and a bathroom. The play of interior reflections, the green pine color of the floors, as well as the vast planter of the corridor open the interior to the outside, thus creating the identity of the house.

A case bathed in light and green close to the capital.
