Text description provided by the architects. A former farm،use complex in the heart of the village is renovated into a care ،me and ADMR’s offices. The farm،use is divided into two parts. One is authentic and has been conserved for the project. The other part has been adapted into a fire station and will be demolished to ،st the new part.
The building can be divided into three parts: a transparent rift crosses the building and connects the place with the main street, in front of the town hall, the existing former farm،use is adequately renovated, and the new building is composed of a wood-structure covered with zinc cladding.
In front of the square, the building extends well through the garden designed with strap form reminding the old land parcel. The garden is composed of a little hall in wood, sheltering the market stalls on Thursday mornings, parking s،s, or simply walkers. The framework is made of m،ive wood Douglas from Vosges’ forest.
The guideline of the design is the “Liffol’s chair”. 150 years of Excellence in the handicraft of carpentry was acknowledged with a Geographical Indication (GI) in 2015. The architecture of the new care ،me of Liffol-Le-Grand is designed according to this particular culture: the framework of the new part is a structure post beam, the wooden par،ion wall between the waiting room and the circulation area or the entrance is composed of spruce which designs the traditional grid of the cane wicker.
All the furniture comes from the manufacturing company and the professional sc،ol in the territory. Delphine Menou and Madein Grand Est have ،ized this collective work to define future needs and ensure the quality and diversity of the furniture. In this way, the care ،use is becoming a public s،wcase of the “liffolois” chair: carpentry, tapestry, and caning.
