How the contemporary architecture and high-tech sustainable technology does successfully combines with pastoral French countryside surroundings? This estate designed by Agence d’architecture Pierre-Yves Le Goaziou is located among majestic maritime pines, on a hillside with a great view towards the sea on the Crozon Peninsula – a definite precondition for a wonderful retreat home.
The facade of this three-floor house is minimalistic and cubical combining the contemporary concrete cantilevered structure with timeless, locally sourced red cedar. That kind of mixture between modernistic and classic- even vintage – can be noted throughout the house – in its architecture and its interior design arrangements. The simplicity of the architectural volumes allows the spaciousness and light to dominate the interior. This fact combined with clear lined contemporary furnishing and natural material palette evokes clean, fresh environment for inhabiting.
The color palette of the interior is dominated by mature, pastel and warm tonalities – where the black framing of the elements (windows, stairs, bookshelves) allows the full, dense colors- like the deep purple in the living room- to stand out. The owner’s rich collection of art, paintings and sculptures stands out perfectly juxtaposed to the minimalistic furniture solutions. The spacious windows, wooden terraces and decks invite the other precious commodity of the property – the view – to come into the premises unobstructed.
