Cyril Chênebeau architects have completed a rural house renovation project in the vicinity of Nice, near the small village of Sclos de Contes. The house is built below an old pathway, on a slope made of some terraces, planted with trees. Before the renovation, it was a small cottage with only one bedroom. Architects added an extension that surrounds the old house with two white concrete blocks. Inside the extension, a double height living room is located. The second smaller volume servers as a light shaft to bring natural light into a shower.
