bordeaux-based architecture studio senecio has completed gazouillis, a 70 sqm renovation project that comprises the interior design and extension of a 65 sqm house in the southwest ocean coast of france. clad in perforated pinewood from the local forest, the residence includes a small, calm garden which has been conceptually extended by enabling access to the rooftop through a staircase.

senecio has extended the existing house by adding three new bedrooms, a bathroom, sanitary, and a cellar, while the rooftop terrace offers access to great views of the peaks of the landes pines. the kitchen opens to the west where family dinners are held on the outdoor terrace during warm evenings, and a window workshop in the interior has replaced a wall of the house to separate kitchen and lounge. the existing walls have been repainted in light gray and white,while the false ceiling inside was deposited to free the cathedral space and the original wooden frame.

  • I like the internals – use of trunnels, etc. The exterior pine would need replacement too soon in my estimation.
