FC: French and US Housing Architecture

1: About My Project | I compared similarly priced living spaces you would find in France to the same type of living spaces you would find in the US. | The living spaces are categorized in different Environments and Locations.

2: City Condo New York & Paris $700,000

3: New York

4: Paris

5: A reason why a living space in Paris is so expensive and fairly small, is because of the space. High rise buildings are not allowed over 7 stories high. Also, Paris is one of the most populated cities in the world.

6: Farm House | Agua Dulce, Texas & Saint Pont, Allier $300,000

7: Texas

8: Allier

9: A Fermette is a small farm house in the countryside. It's mainly made of stone, and consists of the main farmhouse building (which is quite small), outbuildings, and a shed. The common American farm house we're use to has a large main farmhouse.

10: Villa | Lac du Bourget, France & Beverly Hills, California $20,000,000

11: Beverly Hills

12: Villa d'architecte | Lac du Bourget

13: A villa is an upper-class country house. They range in size, but are generally large and luxurious. In France, any villa built or restored in the past 50 years is referred to as villa d'architecte or architect's villa.

14: Good times | Traditional Style Home | Haimps, France & Muskego, WI $250,000

15: Muskego, WI

16: Haimps, France

17: In France, these types of houses are called Maison Charentaise. They are rectangular shaped, and are generally 2 to 3 stories high.

18: What I found out by doing this project was that compared to the homes we're used to seeing here in the US, French homes are not that different.Every living space is unique; some are older, and some are newer. Between the two, the overall architectural designs seem to follow the same pattern depending on the living environment.
