At the entrance to a sculpture park, the barn is an artist's residence and studio. Circus artists, writers, painters and sculptors are welcomed there. A former agricultural barn with a timber frame covered with sheet metal, its recycling required a major structural intervention and an extension allowing the reception and work of artists in residence. The extension designed by eba architecture was treated in accordance with the original form, rather than in contrast. Nevertheless, the openings and certain elements in the façade add a contemporary touch to the whole to evoke the change of vocation of the building.
