Cut Out House

Among the changes made by the American studio Fougeron Architecture to this century-old house there are bright orange-colored internal stairs and a beautiful sloping glass façade.

With an area of 232 square meters, the Cut Out House is located in Noe Valley, a well-off district of the city. The project involved the complete renovation of a Victorian house built over a century ago and remained intact since 1920.

"In this exceptionally small batch, solar orientation and the diffusion of natural light were key features to make sure the house was warm and open," said Fougeron Architecture.

The sloping façade is made up of sheets of glass placed inside an enameled steel frame. The interior of the three-story house has been completely reconfigured. The team "reversed the original flow" by moving the main common area to the ground floor, where it connects to a back garden. A children’s room and a study are located on the second floor, while the large bedroom and a guest bedroom are located on the top floor.

A bright orange staircase serves as a distinctive element inside the house. A perforated metal railing bends inside and out, recalling the shape of the rear façade. The home incorporates a range of sustainable strategies, including natural ventilation, energy-efficient devices and a charging station for an electric vehicle.
