Text description provided by the architects. Drawn for a gallery owner and her husband, this house finished in 2013 in Saint-Tropez becomes established on a very narrow ground.
Developing all living areas upstairs this option allowed to be free from street level by capturing the surrounding areas. The large patio on all intimate rooms of the ground floor provides perspectives from each of these parts to the upper level.
The spaces are well united around the long pool. The front of this volume cantilevered overhang is dressed of natural terracotta cladding specially developed for the project.
By creating a texture cast shadows throughout the house, these facade elements mingle with the cast shadows of the removable pergolas.
