Green Wave

Green wave

La Brière est un marais situé géographiquement au nord de l’estuaire de la Loire débouchant sur l’océan Atlantique.
On y trouve près de 3000 chaumières aux toits couverts de tiges de roseaux.

Les petites dimensions de leurs fenêtres furent imposées par le climat et la taxe sur les ouvertures.

Brière is the marsh area to the north of the Loire estuary in France at its mouth on the Atlantic Ocean.
Cottages with roofs made of reed stems are a common sight, with around 3,000 thatched roof cottages dotted throughout the area.

Their small windows’ size was imposed by climate and by a tax on openings.
