House in Luxembourg (1)
I was surprised when the owners of this mansion asked me to renovate its exterior, because everything seemed to me already in good condition. But they knew that it was possible to make this house more beautiful, and they wanted to get involved to do it.
We discussed several possible improvements:
- 1 – Improve the design of the chassis by adding profiles.
- 2 – Improve the design of the roof and cornice.
- 3 – Refresh the façade and complete the stone frames.
- 4 – Review the surroundings of the house and the gardens.
The photo of the work in progress already shows the improvement that the small intervention had made on the windows. Simple intervention that can improve many buildings where the chassis have been replaced by empty apertures. This especially demonstrates what should not be done when replacing the windows of an old building.
The finished house is not spoiled by a modernist expression or architect's imprint in conflict with the building. My personal satisfaction is to have been the one that allowed the owners to bring out all the potential beauty of their home.
