Maison 51, a Contemporary Compact Home in France

From FABRE/deMARIEN architectes, Maison 51 is a modern home situated in a central district of Bordeaux, France. Its compact shape and seemingly cold exterior hides a cozy contemporary home with a fresh look. We enjoy the black and white contrast that is given by the window borders and the painted walls. Inside, this contributes to a fun mixture of colors which cheers up the whole design. The windows have different characteristics depending on their location: some of them are entrance doors or connect the rooms with the balconies, other have the common functionality of providing light and airing when needed. The patio and the private garden are a great place for relaxation.
