Jean-Benoît Vétillard's Garden house in Laval, France

This garden house presents a contemporary representation of the French mansard roof

The materials and the architectural signification of this house were generated by the construction restrictions of this residential area. This architecture is positioned on the limits of the site. The programme is divided between the two floors, with the ground floor structured by massive walls and completely open to the garden and the principal house. The steep roof with windows creates an additional floor of habitable space and reduces its overall height. This floor is reached via a metallic helical staircase.
