The site proposes a collection of vernacular architectures : an old chapel, a cellar, steps forming a natural amphitheater, old orchards and terraced gardens. Besides its central position in the village, the place also offers many views on the wine-growing landscape. The whole presented many singular objects, archipelagos, in their natural context. These architectures already had qualities linked to their anchoring to the site, to their history, to their traditional conception, to their hyper materiality.
However the link between the architectural elements and their environment existed only partially, the site had suffered of many transformations without consultation, making it lose its link to landscape. Working on memory, our proposal gives to these entities their visibility and their structuring role within the village with sobriety. The chapel regains its autonomy, recessed extensions are grafted to it, assigning it new uses (exhibitions, banquet space, kitchen, storage, sanitary facilities, winter garden). The cellar is rehabilitated, its new floor is extended to the place ; the limit of the place is treated by a concrete seat which draws its end, inviting visitors into the site and allows them to embrace the the whole picture, in a contemplative way.
