« La Ferme aux Escaliers » is a traditional stone building in Burgundy. The North facade is listed as an Historical Monument. The program was oversized compared to the existing building, so we raised the roof and created a new basement. Stones’ facades are restored. A solarium is added to the roof. The light enters this new element to flood the atrium. It's the heart’s building around which all the project is centered. In this magical place, the wooden framework emerges. Activity boxes are suspended in the central void, as if they were floating. A concrete staircase rolls up to 1st floor.
