A stately mansion with fantastic authentic elements in the interior. Largely intact, but in disrepair due to the ravages of time. Dark living spaces and cut off from the garden. A very limited new volume on the garden side resolves both issues. A garden room with large wooden window frames, the interior lightened by using lighter-coloured paints and the preservation of façade elements that have become part of the interior create space and introduce a beautiful first encounter between home and garden.
