TOTAL MAKEOVER OF A BARN

Our clients had bought an old barn on a beautiful 2ha site bordering the river Linge. We were asked to help realise their dream of a large kitchen living room where they could relax, entertain friends and organise wine tasting sessions for their customers.
In the past, the previous owners had already realised an extension by simply extruding the high barn, adding 10 meters, in two floors.
At our first visit, we found the house difficult to inhabit. Most strikingly, virtually no relation existed to the beautiful landscape surrounding the house. All façade openings were too small, in the wrong place, or both. We proposed to invert the layout of the house, moving the offices and storage space to occupy the recent extension and the private spaces to the old barn. A large slit was cut into the barn roof to bring in the light. The final touch was a large piece of furniture that would serve as kitchen, storage, stairs and library all at once.
