The renovation project is structured in two main phases. The first phase involves the interior restructuring of the ground floor to provide more spacious, ergonomic spaces adapted to the lifestyle of the new users. The entire project is based on the construction system of the house, which dates from the 1950s.

The second phase proposes a development of the exteriors integrating a wood-frame construction.

This makes it possible to offer transitional spaces between the interior and exterior, to extend the living space by means of a balcony-terrace, to break the verticality of the facade overlooking the garden and to manage the significant differences in levels by inserting a staircase serving the ground floor of the house and the garden.
