Presentation on theme: "La Couronne The building was erected in the XVII th century. It first was used as wine cellar and hostel. It stands right across Cressiers train station,"— Presentation transcript:

1 La Couronne The building was erected in the XVII th century. It first was used as wine cellar and hostel. It stands right across Cressiers train station, and at the foot of its Renaissance castle. Today, the groundfloor shelters a pizzeria and restaurant, while the upper floors accommodate flats. We renovate little by little...

2 La Couronne First works: creation of a 2½ rooms apartment in the former hotel dining hall of 53 m 2. Living room and kitchen: roughly 24 m 2 Two bedrooms: each 11 m 2 Bathroom:roughly 4 m 2 Corridor:roughly 3 m 2

3 La Couronne Route de Neuchâtel Cressier (NE) Entrance of the restaurant (seen from the Train station) Our own entrance (on the rue du Château). Our name is on the doorbell. Our flat (6 windows on the corner)

8 La Couronne Route de Neuchâtel Cressier (NE) Kitchen Nested in the same general volume, the kitchen space was particularely taken care of, with the new equipment in the colour shade of the existing old cupboards. La Couronne, Cressier Appartement côté rue Construction: spring 2013

10 La Couronne Route de Neuchâtel Cressier (NE) Corridor The short and broad corridor leads to the rooms and bathroom. The original solid wooden floor was restaured and kept everywhere, including in the bathroom. La Couronne, Cressier Appartement côté rue Construction: spring 2013
