Contemporary Foldable Farmhouses

The Cultural Centre Léonce-Georges Fuses Modernity and Tradi

— September 15, 2012 — Eco
The Cultural Centre Léonce-Georges by Calderon-Folch-Sarsanedas Arquitectes features a modern design that gives new meaning to an age-old material. Using reclaimed wood, the design studio creates an angular architecture piece located in a small town in Eastern France.

The geometric structure boasts stunning interior views created with overlapping elements and foldable walls that penetrate the space with plenty of natural light. The refurbished cultural center has been transformed from an L-shaped farmhouse to a modernized communal space infused with steel and timber elements.

The Cultural Centre Léonce-Georges features the juxtaposition of a sharply angular form and a soft wood materiality. The building was made from materials from local woods, ensuring a design that was both ecologically and economically responsible.
