Designed by Atelier Rubin Associés, this rural house in Tréveneuc (France) makes full use of steel to create an energy-efficient structure for family living. The house is clad in Granite® organic coated steel from ArcelorMittal Europe – Flat Products. Joris Ide, a leading provider of steel solutions for agricultural, industrial, and residential buildings, used Granite® in jet black to create corrugated wall profiles.
The corrugated wall profiles are applied vertically on the lower part of the house, and horizontally on the upper floor. As well as accentuating the graphic lines of the structure, the corrugations add visual interest to an otherwise solid black structure.
The strong lines of Joris Ide’s JI 18-076-988 profiles accentuate the irregular shapes of the building’s windows.
The house has been oriented to the south to capture the heat of the sun. The new structure is connected to an old house which has been kept as an extension and now provides workspace for the occupants.
The Granite® range offers excellent corrosion and UV resistance.
While the house is in the middle of fields, it is also close to Tréveneuc, a community on France’s Brittany coast.
The high level of protection provided by Granite® will ensure the new house endures for decades to come.
