Mountain Rescue, France by Blee Halligan Architects
This self-build project serves as an annexe to a mill house. An existing ruined outhouse was patched up and a new timber bedroom, bathroom and dressing room were added
The exterior still resembles a ruin except for a Douglas fir window, which replaced a collapsed external wall. The bathroom and dressing room are housed within an existing lean-to addition and a wide oxide-red gutter joins the roofs of these two historic parts. The building is entirely self-sufficient, with a photovoltaic panel and battery for the building’s electrical needs.
