French Riviera, Summer 2014
We're delighted to present this beautiful property in the South of France; a luxury residence overlooking the exclusive bay of Villefranche-sur-Mer & Saint Jean Cap Ferrat.
Extensive demolition and excavation works were required to realise this challenging transformation. Merging British and French construction methods we could be creative
in overcoming the challenges that we faced building in the Mediterranean climate.
To balance the beauty between the views and the interior, we set out to create an elegant, simple design working in harmony with one another. Intricate detailing to custom-designed joinery introduces a range of luxurious and sophisticated finishes.
A custom designed fireplace creates a focal point to the reception room with hand-stitched leather panels, bronze fixings and marble hearth contributing to the elegance of the space. The fireplace was designed to showcase the client's personal and much loved dog-grate which injects personality and individuality into the scheme.
The creation of the four-sided infinity pool is one of the many highlights of this property providing a relaxing place to swim and to admire as a water feature reflecting the azure blue sea beyond.
The property features a number of sculptures created by renowned British sculptor Philip Jackson and showcases a fabulous art collection which we sourced as part of our design service, giving the property a creative and contemporary feel.
