In a set of 19th century stables of elegant design, the east wing and central pavilion are gutted and rehabilitated to receive a loft style house. In the generous volumes that are subsequently obtained, two white concrete blocks sit in the middle of the floor ; they contain the distribution spaces. Suspended, yet anchored to the concrete blocks, wooden clad volumes shelter the more intimate spaces upstairs. These blocks modulate the empty space and its height, creating diverse ambiances in the main living quarter that occupies the ground floor.
