Renovated from an abandoned millstone home in the suburbs of Paris, the Seine House uses a new extension to harmoniously inject a classic structure with modern design. The original home's historic architectural elements were restored, including the original sandstone walls, herringbone wood floors, and the exterior roof and porches, while an updated kitchen, black steel staircase and concrete floors modernize the interior to complement the new addition. The steel and glass extension enlarges the ground floor living area and creates a covered outdoor patio and a set of terraces for the upstairs bedrooms. The centerpiece of the new space is a hall, committed to displaying the owner's extensive CD and vinyl collection.
