Maisons à Pontaillac is a simple yet majestic house situated in Royan, a town in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in France. The design was handled by Atelier 6 Architecture for a one-family living arrangement on an area of 205m².
The venture is portrayed by its utilization of substantial materials, a necessity so as to coordinate the withdrew home inside this district. Thus, the home uses the idea of stereotomy, thickness, and gravity.
The origination of this two-story house originates from present-day engineering, with style utilized not as an adornment yet as the most important reason or the purpose for someone or something’s existence.
The intrigue isn’t to twist to a stylish or a doctrine, yet the project rather makes the most of this with its own jargon and codes.
The concept works out in a good way past the façade works and building detail. The aforementioned concept also drags the Maisons à Pontaillac towards an extraordinary insight in plan with solid adaptability.
In a synthesis that draws motivation from etchings by Pablo Palazuelo, the white-painted solid squares are divided by level dark edges. Designs like light and gravity are given significance through substantial material familiarity.
The client needed the ground floor to contain throughout the everyday exercises, with the upper levels concentrated on convenience.
At the point when just the couple lives there, all the action is focused on the ground floor. At some other point, when the family is complete, the primary floor and its patio offer the surfaces important to oblige kids and their activities.
In completing the project, Atelier 6 Architecture took a soft detailed approach in a monotonic plot to create a house where you feel safe, protected, sheltered.
