Country Living: Chemin Barn Restoration

Ziegler Antonin Architects have re-purposed an old deserted farm building into a modern residence. The zinc facade of the building was added to cover the original structure and preserve the architectural integrity of the previous building. The architects ensured to keep the existing timber framework in the renovation and reclaimed posts and beams left exposed within the interior. The design of the building's interior is coated with raw concrete and exposed cement blocks to accentuate the rustic palette of the surrounding French landscape and maintains an open-concept, minimal design. Large glass walls and windows were intentionally kept to a minimum, leaving just enough glazing for views of the surrounding countryside and river.
