Minimalist restoration

This spacious house near the Pyrenees was beautifully restored after the disastrous fire, that devoured almost all the interiors - just the bare walls remained. Paradoxically, the catastrophe was an opportunity to revival. A few tall windows were added and the house was filled with light. To emphasize the sense of open space, some dividing walls were designed lower - the ceiling has become a continuous plane. Concrete and marble surfaces create modern look and correspond with tasteful vintage furniture.
