The Swiss architectural practice TARDIN PITTET realised this extension of a single family home which was built in the 1940s in the North of Lausanne. In order to gain additional space for an office the gabled roof was replaced by a flat and a second floor without slants was created. A wooden cladding was mounted on top of the old facade to improve the thermal insulation.
