Maison Saint Leger: Industrial Aesthetics in a Historic Setting

by @industrialkonzept Team

In the picturesque mountain landscape of France's Morvan region, the Parisian architecture firm Minuit has realized a fascinating project: the renovation of the Maison Saint Leger. This historic farmhouse, which was partially renovated two decades ago, underwent a complete and stylish redesign thanks to Minuit's expertise, elegantly combining both modern elements and the original, rustic aesthetic of the farmhouse.

The symbiosis of tradition and modernity

Interior design plays a key role at Maison Saint Leger by skillfully showcasing different materials and colors. For example, okoume wood brings a warming and inviting atmosphere to living spaces, while galvanized steel adds a touch of urban, industrial flair. Large windows and doors that can be opened completely reveal a view of the idyllic landscape - a panorama that can be enjoyed particularly well from the Porte Cochère.

A special highlight of the renovation is the newly created floor. Characterized by a grid-like structure, this area impresses with an innovative mix of composite flooring, a hanging net structure, railings, lights, sliding doors and floating shelves. These elements not only ensure privacy, but also allow natural light to optimally flood into the room.

Preservation of the original

Despite the numerous modern influences, a significant part of the original farmhouse structure has been preserved. The visible brick walls and wooden beams bear witness to the building's rich history. These rustic elements particularly characterize the spacious living area, which stands out clearly from the more private areas such as bedrooms and bathrooms.
