Renovation and extension project by Brengues Le Pavec architectes

The project designed by Brengues Le Pavec architectes is the renovation and expansion of a house from the 1960s in a residential area of Montpellier. Its rational and flat roof typology presents interesting potential with a view to adding additional volume. The extension aims to offer a living space more closely linked to the garden.
