Beach House – France
Renovation of a 19th century holiday villa in Cap Ferret, on the Atlantic coast of France.
Our clients wanted this seaside villa to be one imbued with a holiday atmosphere and to evoke a simple, unpretentious and carefree way of life.
Our additions were designed to sit lightly within the villa, adding new comforts but also contributing to the atmosphere of relaxed informality.
We chose to emphasise the informal character of the setting through a selection of simple materials that age well: rough oak, zinc and painted weatherboard.
