Small extension, big statement: The black wooden facade creates a strong contrast.
In an urban environment characterised by detached houses, this small black house forms a contrast in many ways. Conceived as a new extension, this building was cleverly inserted into a niche between two existing building: an office and an apartment block. The new building is connected directly to the apartment block, however it standards out thanks to the charred wooden façade and significantly stands out as a separate structure. The wooden framework itself is charred, making it resistant to both water and fungal attack with no need for chemical treatment.
