An architect-designed family home with landscaped garden

This superb modernist house was built in 1972 by architect Henri Guibout.

It offers 240 m² of living space in the heart of a magnificent 2,550 m² landscaped garden.

The first floor features an entrance hall and a bedroom with bathroom.

The garden level features a vast cathedral living room with sculptural fireplace and built-in bench seat, opening onto a superb semi-circular terrace and the garden. Overlooking this, a mezzanine converted into a lounge-library is served by a spiral staircase designed by Roger Tallon, suspended through a circular paneled opening. The mezzanine’s wide-open railing lets in light and serves as a book display. A dining room extended by a covered terrace, an independent fitted kitchen and a master suite with terrace complete this level.

The first floor is accessed by a staircase with solid wood balustrades linked by metal strips, which guide the eye up to the first floor and emphasize the volume of the building. It comprises a large landing leading to a bedroom with bathroom and two other bedrooms, one of which has a terrace, a bathroom and a large dressing room.

The basement includes a wine cellar, workshop and two-car garage. Parking spaces complete the ensemble.

The house is located in a quiet, highly sought-after residential area of Les Loges en Josas, just 700m from the town center and schools, 2 km from shops and RER-C station, and 4 km from Versailles. The A86 motorway to Paris is approx. 15 km away.

Seventies spirit

The structure of the house follows the contours of the land, distributing the volumes in half-levels as the topography varies. This flexibility of plan, respectful of the site, optimizes the use of available surface areas and organically distributes the functions and uses assigned to the various spaces.

The gently sloping double-sloped roof is covered in slate, allowing the architecture to blend seamlessly with the identity of the site. The architect’s program for the family pavilion blends tradition and modernity, in terms of the choice of materials and construction techniques, the distribution of volumes, the generosity of openings and the clean lines of the overall design.

Henri Guibout

Born in 1922 and died in 1999, Henri Guibout studied at the Ecole spéciale d’architecture, graduating in 1948. He worked in Paris and Saint-Brieuc in the Côtes d’Armor region. He worked on the Tour Hertzienne in Pleumeur-Bodou and joined forces with architects Serge Maloletenkov (known as Malo), Yves Betin and Guillaume Gillet’s team to design the Palais des Congrès and the Concorde Lafayette hotel (now the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile) in 1973. The hotel is the 3rdth tallest building in Paris, after the Eiffel Tower and Tour Montparnasse.
