Contemporary house / Maison contemporaine:

At MaHouse, designed by MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY, the extra length of a step, the degree of each tilt, the obliques in plan and elevation and their corner indentations act as small anomalies to introduce the experiential to one’s daily environment. A set of stairs engaged as a slide is an example of informal follows function.

Program: single family house with garage/basement + 3 levels: 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, one office and a play room + pool.

Location: Quartier de l’Orangerie, Strasbourg Centre, France
Completion: Jan. 2015

MARC FORNES THEVERYMANY Plan Oblique

Of three stacked floors — parents’ penthouse on top, children’s playground in the middle, ground floor for all — the middle level is the most jumbled.

A staircase lined by Reglit glass profiles slips through the house’s three levels, providing a continuous spatial experience and copious light without direct views inside.

The lines of the house are derivatives of code lines and constraints — from maxing out the allowable zoning envelope, to the clearance height of each owner’s car in the underground garage.
