A totally obsolete former barn is converted into a comfortable pool house and playroom, extension to the main house of the property.
The existing volumetry is maintained, but interior partitioning is simplified and reorganized.
Several sliding wooden shutters protect the openings from intrusion and excessive sun exposure, enliven the facades and provide a counterpoint to the brightness of the exterior white walls.
Simplicity, modernity and tradition combined.
