French architects Titan have built a replacement visitor centre at the home of former French leader Georges Clemenceau after the original was destroyed by Cyclone Xynthia in 2010.

The house's new entrance pavilion has been designed to blend into its coastal surroundings – clad entirely in sand-coloured concrete – and houses a museum shop and educational space.

Clemenceau, who was French president during the First World War and one of the main figures behind the Treaty of Versailles, lived at the home until his death in 1929 when it was converted into a museum filled with his personal belongings.

The house, in Western France, overlooks the sea and has an impressionist garden that Clemenceau designed with the artist Claude Monet.

Of its new visitor centre, Titan founders Mathieu Barré, François Guinaudeau, and Romain Pradeau said: "Respecting the site's heritage, the new addition acts as a gateway to the gardens. We imagined the structure as a concrete monolithic volume emerging from the ground."
