Today it is very fashionable to restore old mansions.
But, as a rule, architects leave intact the facades of the houses, and the interior change to a more modern, in accordance with the wishes of the owners.
The reconstruction project of the architectural Bureau 05AM Arquitectura.
Architectural Bureau 05AM Arquitectura was commissioned to carry out the reconstruction of houses of the XIX century Maison à Colombages located in the suburbs of Paris (France). The owners of the house wished that the architects adapted the interior space to the modern realities, without losing the charm of the last century.
