Location: Cannes, France
Project Year: 2010
Cost: 100k - 500kThe house is for a private client and his young family primarily for holiday use, has six bedrooms and is set into the hillside overlooking the bay of Cannes, spread over two floors with most of the bedrooms on the lower ground floor.
A large raised terrace at entry level provides an shaded arcade to the bedrooms and garden below whilst offering long views over the bay. A large swimming pool is surrounded by timber decking providing a cool place to chill through the long hot summer months. Each bedroom is served by its own bathroom; the kitchen is now configured to open out into the dining / living area, a former attic room forms a study bedroom with crow’s nest and roof terrace overlooking the bay.
The entire project was designed and implemented in 9 months. Low smooth rendered walls enclose Mediterranean plants and a consistent palate of Mediterranean white pervades all the interior and exterior of the house.
