Interior architecte innenarchitekt and architecte cooperate lilis garden
The interior designer from EGB and the architect from Atelier Pia Mai wanted to at least partially preserve the identity of this 18th century building while modifying its early agricultural function, to transform it into a small, functional set of dwellings focused around the inspirational garden.
While maintaining this desire for authenticity, the designers, however, did not shy away from mixing traditional techniques with contemporary raw materials (whitewashed walls, concrete, untreated wood, … ).
Within this very complex building undertaking complexe entreprise de construction, EGB, in its role as general coordinator, linked its interior architect and designer with, firstly, the architect’s office then the offices of the consultant civil and technical engineering company but also with a biologist specialising in “Baubiologie” (construction biology) an essential step when constructing an ecologic building, a ‘healthy’ building free of all noxious material
The interior designer followed the modus operandi of working from the interior towards the exterior, i.e. the character and requirements of the different dwellings were identified first, the lifestyle or way of life, only then were the containing walls examined. The remarkable design of the living areas was clearly inspired by our architects’ numerous visits to Voralberg as well as to the Far East, notably Taiwan and China.
On environmental, as much as economic, grounds it goes without saying that the building materials as well as the tradesmen entrusted with the work all came from the Greater Region SaarLorLux.
Of the 317 projects short-listed, the group of apartments Lili’s Garden won a prize in the ‘multiple dwelling’ category (more than 3 dwellings). The renovation of this ancient farmhouse in Dommeldange has already been given prominent coverage on http://www.loft.lu/news-518
