Inside, special attention was paid to the upper ground floor, where a central unit featuring a fireplace, library, TV and access to the upper floors defines the living spaces and offers elegant perspectives.

The new perimeter thermal shell, replacing the oil-fired heating with an air/water heat pump and collecting rainwater also make this renovation a sustainable place to live for its new residents.
