Barres & Coquet Design a Magnificent Home in Lyon, France
By Magaly • Aug 10, 2017
This house was designed around wooden boxes placed alongside the slope of the construction plot that serves as a structure for the living space as well as for the surroundings, allowing views on different landscapes. It was designed by the architectural firm Barres & Coquet in Lyon, France, in the year 2011 and covers an area of 180 square meters.
It has gorgeous gardens fenced in by a wall of natural rock, as well as a pool area with wooden floors and comfortable outdoor furnishings that fit the décor perfectly and provide a spot to rest and relax.
Its exterior walls have been clad in wood and glass doors have been set to allow natural light to seep into the interior.
Wood has been used in the interior of the living room to cover the walls, and modern furnishings have been used to add contrasting colors. The hanging lamps in black and the chimney set into the wall finish the ensemble.
Fabrics and materials have been carefully chosen to balance with the minimalism and raw materials of the main structure.
The bedroom has a desk area in a very modern style, as well as a small terrace that serves as an escape.
