From the architect. The site in the centre of the wine-growing village of St-Blaise, is in front of the temple. Made up of four lots, it is defined by some old walls sheltering some orchards and by the presence of the vicarage.

The project possesses two sides, the reserved one, translated by the nature of its secondary building with a two framed roof placed at the bottom of the garden, the other official one, made up of a glass façade and of a one piece overhanging facing the church.

don't really see anything 'elegant' about this. it looks like a garage in pic 3. could they have no put even a little arts&crafts window on the end gable?

agree with hovarrd, this is a promising looking project until you view the eves, and then the interior.
i mean really, what are you thinking? chipboard is a crap material and reads as such unless you detail with the skill of donald judd. the color of the chipboard diminishes the impact of the eves also.

this project is so worthy of attention for it's simplicity and understated elegance. the designers should be very proud of achieving such a green and sustainable solution for real. i'm stunned, in a very good way, that this "low" design is featured by you. i will follow this group now in the news. thank-you.
