Located near Aix-en-Provence, in a rural area, this project plays with the typology of agricultural farm houses architecture. The clients’ brief was the refurbishing of this “mas provençal” facing an olive tree field. They were in demand of a strong contemporary element that could bring a totally new identity to the house. The architects therefore proposed to replace the former farmhouse part of the existing construction, which was slightly difficult to adapt because of its minor construction quality and it’s chaotic partition, by a new timber frame structure that will host a spacious living room and the “en suite” main bedroom. The preserved part of the existing construction being dedicated to the children and friend’s rooms.
