in need of renovation in Fontenay-aux-Roses
Fontenay-aux-Roses, HAUTS-DE-SEINE paris 92260 FR

Location

The house is just a few minutes from the shops in the centre of Sceaux and Fontenay-aux-Roses, in the Hauts-de-Seine department. There are a number of well-known schools nearby, including the Lycée Lakanal and Lycée Marie-Curie, as well as the private Sophie-Barat school in Châtenay-Malabry, and the Renard school for younger children. In terms of buses, the 194 goes to Porte d'Orléans, as well as the above-mentioned schools. Line B of the RER is a 10-minute walk from the house, making Paris a short trip away.

Description

Set in a 544 m² plot in a suburban neighbourhood near Sceaux station, this 270 m² architect-designed house was designed by André Wogenscky, a former student and then assistant to Le Corbusier from 1936 to 1956. Located in a suburban neighbourhood, this modernist-style building is in need of restoration. It is made up of a vast living room, a dining room, kitchen, five bedrooms and the same number of bathrooms.

The house

It is accessible from the street via two entrances: the pedestrian gate or the car garage. It also shares its entrance with two new buildings at the back of the plot, designed in modernist spirit too.


The ground floor
Once past the entrance, the first room in the centre, known as the “games room”, leads to all the other rooms: four bedrooms, all with en suite shower rooms or bathrooms, as well as the cellar, linen room and boiler room. This is also where the wide staircase leading to the first floor begins.
The first floor
The main living space in the house. Designed to dominate the surrounding spaces, the areas are lit by large picture windows from which light pours in in abundance, highlighting the marble-covered floor throughout. In the centre, the bright, spacious living room and dining room have been laid out in a row. The dining room adjoins the kitchen for added practicality. On one side, there are the office and the conservatory. On the opposite side, the living room and master bedroom, with its en-suite bathroom lead out onto the terrace, which is topped by a pergola and flooded with natural light.

Our opinion

With its clean, minimalist lines and cubic facade, the house is reminiscent of a perfectly geometric Californian villa. It is an immaculate building with modernist accents that evokes beaches and the Pacific Ocean. It is a perfect architectural model of simplicity and functionality. Designed by the architect André Wogensky, a former pupil and then assistant to Le Corbusier from 1936 to 1956, the house features simple lines, an open plan layout, a flat roof and horizontal windows. Initially, the lower part of the house was open and the entire structure stood on stilts. This area was later converted into a living area. Inside, with all the natural light, uninterrupted views and winter garden, its potential is obvious. However, renovation work will be needed to restore the house to its former glory.
