The rails to­day al­low lug­ga­ge to be ta­ken right to the en­tran­ce. “The aim was to sa­fe­guard this area, pre­fer­ring sim­ple ar­chi­tec­tu­ral so­lu­tions wi­th low en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact”, La­loux tells us. The in­te­riors are on two le­vels and ha­ve been re­plan­ned to gi­ve, on the ground floor, a big loun­ge wi­th kitchen that ex­tends to the pa­tio and th­ree be­drooms in the ea­st wing, ea­ch one wi­th its own ba­th­room. Mea­n­whi­le, the fir­st floor looks li­ke a loft, cha­rac­te­ri­sed by its tim­ber roof trus­ses and a room di­vi­der fea­tu­ring the pic­tu­re of a vin­ta­ge train. The main idea has been to en­han­ce ba­sic ma­te­rials ( sto­ne, wood, me­tal and con­cre­te) and to put the light that floods the rooms and the re­la­tion­ship wi­th na­tu­re cen­tre- sta­ge. The fur­ni­shings are a mix of vin­ta­ge pie­ces, be­spo­ke fur­ni­tu­re by Kyo- Co and so­me con­tem­po­ra­ry de­si­gn elements. The the­me of tra­vel and re­fe­ren­ces to the world of rail­ways are eve­ry­whe­re.
