BARN RENOVATION IN VAILLY (HAUTE-SAVOIE)
Renovation, restoration and extension of an ancient XIX century barn in the mountain village of Vailly.
The project is located in an ancient village in a mountain valley among other traditional buildings.
The existing barn is composed of two levels on a sloped ground, with the lowest level made of masonry and the upper one entirely made of wood. The existing wood structure cannot be restored, and will be replaced by a similar one hosting two more levels inside. The exterior wooden cladding will be treated with burn process, a revised traditional local method. This method used traditionally also in Japan (Shou-Sugi-Ban) preserve wood from severe weather and keeps its quality in time. The house will blend in with the surrounding constructions harmoniously, with its revised traditional look.
