The Puig Pujol Architectures agency makes us discover its project to extend a barn in the Hautes Pyrénées. Sliding under the curves of the land, the semi-underground house in steel, stone and glass houses a guest bedroom and a workshop. Its large south-facing glass facade bathes the interior in natural light. Punctuated by a steel structure, it also allows the storage of firewood.


Note that this project of the agency Puig-Pujol Architecturesest is winner of Architecture Midi-Pyrénées 2011.
