Our agency was entrusted with the design of a holiday home, whose requirements consisted in a perfect integration in the site and the respect of ecological and economic constraints. Its design is inspired by the traditional tobacco barns that dominate the landscape of the Dordogne department. The project includes the distinctive features of these buildings, a cubic structure with a saddle roof and wood panelling, large sliding doors on the narrow sides of the building, movable wooden shutters on its long sides and, in most cases, ventilation openings in the roof.
The project received a special mention from the jury at the 2003 "Palmarès de l'habitat en Aquitaine".
