Haut House by Atelier Lame Architecture
Continuing our search for some of the more interesting homes on the planet, the latest construction to catch our eye is this ‘Haut House’ conversion by Paris-based architects Atelier Lame.
The ‘Haut House’ (as we’ve dubbed it) by Atelier Lame Architecture resides in a quiet suburb in Haut-de-Seine department, a 30 minutes train journey from Paris city centre. Perfectly situated on a quiet street, the house comes with a large outdoor area and has been recently transformed thanks to an extension and renovation.
While the place was extensively renovated, much of the original gritstone architectural features have been kept to create a perfect blend of rustic form and contemporary design with the addition of plenty of perfectly crafted steel. The house benefits from the abundant use of glass too, which as well as flooding the house with natural light also merges the interior and exterior.
The extension was added primarily for a larger living area on the ground floor, which now consists of the two living rooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a single corridor lined with a collections of CDs and LPs.
The first floor of the Haut House is where you’ll find the first set of bedrooms. The master bedroom comes with an en suite bathroom and access to a terrace overlooking the large garden.
You’ll also find a spare bedroom on the first floor which has similar access to the terrace. The remaining upper floors are dedicated to the children of the house who each have a bedroom with a sleeping area and playing area
