Located in the rural region of southern France, the La Grange du Père is an extension of a traditional house, only with the living room and dining room which connected through the kitchen of the existing house.

The surrounding architecture is devoted to farming, architect Marielle Camoin and Jonathan Inzerillo has created a simple but modern building for the farmer family: a wood boxes on the ground.
The site is 15 x 4 meters, all the facades are articulated with pin white varnish sawn slats, only the south gable is glass, the roof without frame simply made from auto-stable caissons once implemented.
This uncluttered volume will be open to the west on the garden and in the same way to the East on the big patio, the interior calm, smooth and slightly shiny.
Inspiration from architect:
The ground is composed of sandy silts. We have chosen to realise a construction rising off the ground in order to avoid heavily impacted the ground. The clients expected to a heavy and traditional architecture while the landscape inspire us holiday and lightness.
