From farmstead to dwelling: The aim behind redesigning the former farmhouse in the Cevennes region in the south of France was to link the two spacious main buildings by means of an additional space. This can only be looked into from the inner courtyard, boasting floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the pool area in front of the house. Architect Gil Percal opted for light-gray tiles by Mosa from the Ultragres Terra XXL Collection each measuring 90 x 90 centimeters for the newly created living area. Each of the unglazed and very low-maintenance tiles is a one-off, creating in combination a natural grain. Outdoor tiles from the Mosa Exterior Flooring Collection were used for the directly adjacent terrace, which in size and color are identical to the flooring on the inside. The 30-centimeters-thick tiles were specially developed for outdoor use and are therefore especially hard-wearing and frost-proof. Thanks to the continuous flooring, the living room seamlessly transitions into the terrace when the glass facade is open.
The combination of old and new was also continued away from the main building in the open kitchen in the pool house. Limestone exposed during the redesign forms the alcove. Like the edging around the swimming pool, the flooring consists of tiles from the Ultragres Terra Maestricht Collection, this time in a soft anthracite and measuring 30 x 30 centimeters. The result is a perfect interplay between the purely ceramic floor coverings by Mosa and the limestone, glass, wood, and metal elements.
