Reconstructed old farm, Saint Paul de Vence, France

Architect Yves Bayard and his wife, designer Jacqueline Morabito, have reconstructed a 16th-century sheep barn, located amidst an olive grove at St-Paul-de-Vence,into an amazing house. The white walls and concrete floor covered with a coating of wax, white furniture and translucent lamps add aeriality to the construction, an airy bridge to the library running across it. The ceiling seems especially high due to the narrow windows. The house is equipped with baroque furniture, manufactured on the basis of Jacqueline's sketches.
