This project is an invitation to reflect on a progressive architecture, thought from the inside and where aesthetics is only a simple transcription of the uses contained.
At the heart of a protected natural site in the Médoc, the hangar rises after its destruction following a fire. Its size corresponds to that of the old building, the only condition for us to be able to start construction.
The exercise prompts us to take a close look at the vernacular buildings in the area. Try to be part of a continuity, while bringing singularities where they are not expected.
Two volumes stand out and follow each other. The first corresponds to the workshop, clad in wood and openwork on the large sliding sides on both sides. They allow to ventilate this crossing space, like traditional tobacco dryers by visual openings that connect with the horizontality of the surrounding landscape. The sales area finds itself lulled in light by its roof window. The large picture window gives it a natural and welcoming complexion.
The same template, the same materials. A concrete base on a low height to support the wood cladding in natural Douglas which will get gray over time. The roof, in Roman tile and double slope remains discreet from the outside but offers a generous spatiality.
Details that speak of the rurality of the site and the reality of its climate.
