St Jean Cap Ferrat
A METERRANEAN VILLA
Mr. and Mrs. M. were looking for a home on the French Riviera where they could gather their family and friends in the atmosphere of an 18th century family residence. When they bought this property, they were seduced by the authentic soul of this house, by its location and by its charming garden. However, this cramped, poorly constructed building could not be lived in as it was. The challenge here was to completely rethink the space, enlarging and restoring the house, whilst preserving its soul. Well acquainted with the tastes and lifestyle of Mr. & Mrs. M., they entrusted me with their project. We were going to have to use the latest engineering and construction methods in order to achieve the design objectives and at the same time, succeed in creating a warm and timeless setting.
