The limestone borie on the footpath to Barjac. These dry stone structures are found all over the south of France 🇫🇷. Here they are called borie and in other places are known as cabanon or capitalles. They are ancient, finely constructed and had multiple uses, shelters for shepherds and goat herders, homes for agricultural workers, grain stores and animal shelters. They're built in all kinds of shapes and designs and large enough for a bed and a fire #borie #capitalle #cabanon #france #french #bergerie #stones #stonebuilding #drystone #ruralfrance #drawing #sketches #sketchoftheday #sketchbook

First built as the two storey #BankofAustralasiaCollinsStreet in 1876, designed by #ReedandBarnes (ie #JosephReed) in #RenaissanceRevival "of plain but vigorous character"; then in 1928-9 #AandKHenderson added three floors, one exactly matching, one setback and another attic floor, and rebuilt the interior with a much larger chamber. Converted to service apartments about 2001, it's now called #TreasuryonCollins (though it was never the treasury - that's at the other end of collins street).

My first time spending summer vacation here - a lovely town of Pirovac. A traditional local architecture photo first⛪💙💛
