|The Urban Retreat is a single family home and architecture studio in Paris' 18th arrondissement. This project emphasized every step of the construction process, from designing a structural system to detailing connections and materials.
The concept for my design was that of a natural getaway in the center of a city. By creating a structural grid I was able to move the circulation and services of the home to the sides, allowing for a more open floor plan. The use of large windows on the free facades allow for day lighting and natural ventilation, while the wooden screens provide privacy along the street.
