Luminous townhouse renovation in France: White House

 White House-Pierre Antoine Compain-01-1 Kindesign

The renovation of a private residence completed in 2014 in La Rochelle, France results in the open and luminous ‘white house’, designed by Le Studio Pierre Antoine Compain. The scheme is organized around a full-height atrium, located beneath a large roof window, which allows light to flow into each of the four floors. Glass partitions and white floors in this inner void promote illumination, while promoting an overall openness both in vertical and horizontal axes. Small pods extend into the central space to create areas scaled for individual use, including a computer station and reading nook.

Presentation of the Studio:

To begin there is space, an empty space, sometimes attached to a past but always turned to the possibilities that the future holds. This space is precious, along with the designs that will take place within. The studio’s work consists of sculpting the void, the emptiness, and transforming it by shining light upon volumes, functions and materials. Our ambition is to create a unique spatial design that will be self-evident and recognizable. Deeply attached to the laid back identity of Southern France, The Studio is also inspired by other horizons, other cultures, from the vibrant colors of Brazil to the sleek lines of the Florida coast. Our creations reflect a taste for light, lively colors and soft forms. The studio aspires to present a global approach to the project, where design and product meet to form one. Our goal is to share our design driven philosophy with our clients in search of singular, spectacular and foremost identifiable spaces.
