House in Challex, France designed by Zoomfactor Architects

By • Mar 21, 2017

This house, built in Challex, a small residential area in France, was designed by Zoomfactor Architects in 2016 and boasts a total of 190 meters squared of space. Its concrete exterior gives it a cold aspect, but it is a small detail that we seem to forget once we arrive at the terrace, with its wood floors and glass railing, the incredible views of the extensive and green landscape before us.

Inside, the combination of polished concrete, wood, and white walls make us forget the coldness of the exterior, and we simply admire the details of each space.

The door at the entrance is solid, but does not lose its beauty. Just past it, the handrails at the stairs are made of a delightful wood.

The kitchen, with some structures in white and others made of wood, is strategically positioned in front of some glass doors, through which we can enjoy the incredible landscape.

This can be perfectly described in a single word: disconnect. This is a place where we can disconnect from our daily dealings and thus recuperate some of our energy.

At night, the landscape is reduced to a strip of light in the immense horizon. From this environment, shrouded in almost complete darkness, emanates a sensation of peace and tranquility.
