This estate in southwest France where agricultural work was once done, is now home to tourism and cultural activities. Four previously rustic buildings are gradually being renovated to create artists’ studios. Half of the house is now a community kitchen, forming the center of a new, dynamic and artistic village life.
With the bulthaup b3 kitchen system, the original picture of the kitchen-cum-living room has been redrawn in a contemporary form. A large table with a variety of chairs complements the 6 meter long island with stainless steel worktop. No tall units were used. The bulthaup b3 multi-function wall holds all necessary appliances. The result was a living space with the character of a loft in which people can cook, eat, work and party.
Since the house stands in the midst of old fruit trees, the front material for the kitchen elements was selected in high-quality apple veneer with the characteristic planked finish. The aluminum wall panels and the concrete floor form a visual contrast to the wood.
