Apr 02, 2010 17:33
Maison 51 is a modern home situated in a central district of Bordeaux, France. Designed by FABRE/deMARIEN architectes, Its compact shape and seemingly cold exterior is in fact a cozy contemporary home with a look that adds a dash of modernity to the neighbourhood:
The black and white contrast given by the window borders and the painted walls yet again contrasts with the fun mixture of colors that delve within the interior. Windows of the home vary depending on their location, with some of them located at entrance doors or connecting the rooms with the balconies, and the others have the common functionality of providing light and airing when needed. The best spot to chill would have to be the patio and the private garden which makes for an ideal relaxation space.
Designed by Reyes Rios + Larrain Architects, this modern residence for a family of five was built around an expansive terrace connecting the interior with the unique zig-zag shaped pool. The home is finished with a lavish 1000 square foot garden, and an unassuming fence keeping what's inside a mystery. Read more
