House in Moussages, France

David Chastain Architecte DPLG

The project involves the extension of a dwelling house.  Architectural fabric of the existing surrounding landscape consists of historic and typical buildings of rural areas of central France.  The land comprising the construction is located right next to a church classified as historical building.

The extension is dissociated from the existing building, but is bound by a fully glazed volume. It is constructed of a concrete frame and covered (sloping roof and walls of the floor) with green pre-patinated copper.  The choice of using the copper solution was motivated by the desire to build decidedly contemporary way, despite the use of a material that has played a major role in the history of civilizations and construction.

Also, the owner wanted by the choice of copper, remember the job of his parents related to a luxury and accuracy ironwork.  The choice of colour is part of a respectful approach to the very green landscape environment of medium mountains of the massif central of france, and the desire to link with the garden and its plants, which are reflected, randomly, on the panels copper.
