Villefranche sur mer
Situated next to the Col de Villefranche-sur-Mer, overlooking St. Jean Cap Ferrat and the Villefranche Bay with a stunning view, the property initially consisted of a small neo-Provençal house in a very poor condition and without any architectural interest. The site was relatively steep, as was the entire hillside which backs onto the last foothills of Mont Alban, but this was also what created its charm.
It was a real 'love at first sight' when the owner introduced us the place, its location, the view and the enormous potential it represented. The property had to be dramatically redesigned and developed to meet the requirements of our client (who wanted a contemporary architecture that would allow for a very large extension) and to overcome the obstacles posed by the geology of the land.
