The studio of Pierre Antoine Compain has completed the 'White House' in France, which although takes the same name as the famous presidential suite, looks nothing like the original.

The design focuses around a central void in the house, which runs from the base of the building right to the top. This open atrium allows light to shine through all the way from the roof right down to the bottom level of this four-storey house. Interestingly, the place looks more like an office than a house, with a computer room placed within the atrium at the very bottom. Punches of color are also featured throughout using bright hues such as pink.

Pierre Antoine Compain studio managed to make the most of this smaller space.
