The clients had purchased two small and very close cottages, included within the urban structure of the village, their intention was to unite them into a pleasant summer stay house. Given the patchy floor plan, composed by the cottages and cabanons (for tool and service), the project idea was a “village inside the village”: maintain and renovate the cabanons so as to achieve, the idea of being in a small village district. The two cottages are joined by breaking down the dividing wall, thus creating a day space large enough to receive. The cabanons become the annexes for the guest rooms and pavilions of services (pool and garage). The south garden, the largest of the two, allows the construction of a swimming pool and a barbecue area. The renovation has maintained the Provence charm and has used local architecture materials and structures.
