The by Stephane Malka Architecture near the busy urban streets of Paris has been designed as a modern student residence. The construction is just a remodeling — without changing its original traits — of a pre-existent building. The only things new here are some wooden palettes which impart a new outlook to this structure.
The extremely high ceilings in the living area make a roomy and grandiose statement. The hanging globe lamps accentuate this height even further. The flight of stairs with a landing is neatly placed against a wall that occupies a minimum of space allowing full use of the ground floor without a big visual intrusion.
Flooded by light through the glass side and featuring skylights and round windows the partly hidden structure benefits from a natural glow complimented by a carefully designed lighting system. An old jaguar car lives its second life as a bookshelf in the kitchen.
Supported by a steel and concrete skin the interior volumes containing the living and resting spaces can be rearranged by adding or removing rooms. By using locally sourced lark timber to dress up the facade the architects embedded the modern architecture into the surrounding landscape.
Stretching across an area of 4589 square feet this wonderful two storey building has the main living room as well as the master suite on the second level. This allows you to have a full coverage of the exciting outdoor view. The house is an exemplary example of using wood in house construction.
The split level house features the master bedroom half way between the public space and the children’s quarters. Resulting in an L-shaped floor plan with the master suite cantilevering in the middle the Hasharon House benefits from a large garden and a set of interiors perfectly suited for the inhabitants. Not far from being an ideal place to raise children this contemporary home is welcoming and can be given as an example of modern residential architecture.
The eastern half features an open floor plan with large spaces and a dynamic layout easily accessible from the garage. Here inhabitants benefit from a master suite including a 14-metre long dressing room with fitted wardrobes and a glazed wine cellar. The dining area has ample room for a gathering of guests. The living area can also hold a family reunion.
