Raphaëlle Segond, Architect

Contemporary Residence

Grimaud, French Riviera, FR,

Designed by the architect Raphaëlle Segond as a "shelter" in relation to the surrounding nature, this contemporary house with clean lines, poured concrete, glass panels and wood cladding allows contemplation and sweetness of life. Ideally located on the heights of Grimaud, it offers since its terrace a wonderful view of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez. Featuring 2700 square ft. on two levels, the house has on the ground floor a spacious entrance hall, a kitchen, a dining room and two bright rooms overlooking a large terrace sheltered by the roof overhang and vegetation, ideal to enjoy Mediterranean meals. We access from the outside to a third room for three persons. Each bedroom includes a bathroom and a dressing room. On the first floor are the living room and the master suite overlooking the pool, a solarium and a sheltered terrace to enjoy the beautiful view of the Mediterranean sea. A fifth bedroom, independent, was carefully arranged in the garden, in the heart of the vegetation. Surrounded by a lush garden of 25725 square ft. planted with oaks and arbutus, the house blends into the Mediterranean landscape. A privileged relationship with the surrounding nature is offered by the transparency of all rooms thanks to full height sliding windows blurring the boundary between inside and outside, and reinforced by the presence of multiple transitional spaces such as terraces. For a perfect fusion with the environment, some walls are lined with cork oak bark of Maures Massif, others are made of poured concrete with a texture similar to that of wood. This house offers high quality services such as air conditioning, nevertheless, it has a pleasant summer temperature due to the inertia of the concrete and of the omnipresence of windows that allow natural ventilation.
