An antiques dealer, loaded with talent and taste, decided to convert an abandoned factory in Provence into an ultra-contemporary house in order to rent to his friends.
It is called Pomodoro, because it was formerly a tomato factory. It is now an imposing house with a side terrace where the entrance is.
