damien dewing/la laiterie


Almost any size project can be undertaken, from a practical piece of furniture around an intricate carving, adapting and hanging an old door, to small buildings and stone structures.

The Normandie workshop is also storage area to a wealth of architectural reclamation, mostly from India, and the liasion between these and natural new material, such as oak and torchie from Normandie, and stone from the mines of Rajasthan and Orissa, mean the possibilities are endless.

Ideally, a client would choose from the selection at the workshop, but if this is not possible, for instance the project is in another country, successful results have been achieved through e mail correspondence and images..


La grande majorité de vos projets sera prise en compte, de la création d’un meuble pratique fait de sculptures tortueuses à l’adaptation et l’intégration d’une porte centenaire, en passant par le recyclage de petites constructions et structures en pierre.

L’atelier de Normandie est aussi une source de richesses architecturales, principalement d’origine indienne, en attente d’une nouvelle vie. Les combinaisons possibles de ces éléments anciens et des ‘nouvelles’ matières naturelles, telles que le chêne et le torchie normand, se révèlent infinies.

Bien que le processus idéal de la réalisation d’un projet commence par l’expérience physique de l’atelier, nous obtiendrons toujours des résultats plus que satisfaisants par simple échange d’e-mails avec vos idées, commentaires et images.
