Masterplan and architectural design for regeneration of a derelict farmyard and buildings in the ancient city of Carcassonne, Southern France.

 Below the walls of the ancient Cathar castle city, this farmyard, farmhouse, barn, and garages had sat unused for 30 years and is a sensitive World Heritage site.

 Discussions with the local community revealed a shortage of key- worker small-unit housing. The scheme provides a phased development of up to 24 residential studios, whilst retaining a private courtyard residence with 6 bedrooms, pool and family spaces opening onto terraces.
