Eco-peasant house on Oléron island
The architectural intervention we propose is a kind of continuity rather than a rupture. The aesthetic confrontation that is deployed will allow the different elements to enhance each other. Inspired by the existing volumetric proportions and scale, we have chosen to challenge the initial request by dividing the programme into two separate small buildings with a more contemporary expression. One building for each programmatic entity, i.e. reception and exhibitions. The first is characterised by its position straddling the inside and outside of the lot. Its particular scale sets it apart from the other surrounding buildings. As you approach it, you can see all the buildings on the lot and, above all, the way in which they are entered. The exhibition building has a volume closer to that of the Thieuzine and the adjoining winery. It is longer and lower than the reception area, with a gable roof with much less slope. Its two longitudinal façades open expansively onto the exterior and benefit from large roof overhangs. They allow the view between the two plots of land to flow freely and make the display of the collections on the site more legible.
