HOUSE WITH PRIVATE PATIO AND SWIMMING-POOL
Stunning holiday retreat between art and design on the French Riviera
Article à consulter sur ELLE DECO
In Saint Tropez, right in the beating heart of the French Riviera, an art gallery owner together with her partner assigned the local architectural firm Vincent Coste to design a modern villa with private pool that was able to give traditional Mediterranean architecture a more contemporary twist.
Arquitectura: Vincent Coste
En verano, Saint-Tropez es el lugar preferido de las celebridades. Pero es también un pequeño paraíso para los conocedores que saben como alejarse del bullicio. Es el caso de los dueños de esta casa de 300 metros cuadrados, una galerista y su esposo. Confiaron en el arquitecto francés Vincent Coste quien diseñó los espacios interiores alrededor de la piscina larga y estrecha.
Después de iniciar su carrera con Rem Koolhaas (OMA) en Holanda y Oscar Tusquets en Barcelona, Vincent Coste lanzó su despacho en 2000, en Saint-Tropez. Desde hace 15 años, sus proyectos reflejan líneas arquitectónicas ligeras además de integrarse en su entorno.
From the architect. The plan of this villa is in a triangle. It has a double vision: it opens on the bay of Sanary and that of Toulon. The idea was to orient each space on both panoramas, hence his plane triangle which allowed to develop a greater frontage of 35 meters long.
The living spaces are oriented on both views from sunrise to sunset. Each space (living room, kitchen, master bedroom) opens as a subspace of the terrace (summer room, summer kitchen jakuzzi) in a total interior and exterior continuity /. Conversely, the private spaces are oriented towards the entrance façade and the interior garden.

Situated to Gassin, to the crossroads of roads leading to the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, this project contains the rehabilitation of a sales area of wine as well as the implementation of a facade allowing a better legibility of buildings.
This part of the wanted program, was envisaged through a wide metallic structure allowing the implementation of a wooden meshing (red cedar) allowing to pass the light and bringing a foreground allowing to restore a visual unity to heterogeneous all the existing buildings.
The interior design articulates around a welcome area handled by the implementation of a grill from which are suspended wide lightings values podia for every domain presented to the customers
The zone of sale and tasting presents bottles on all the wall surfaces. What allows an emphasis of every product. Wide elements of furniture in oak, drawn specially, articulate the circulation of the customers.
The esthetic treatment of the sales area brings a sensation of simplicity by the rigorous and simple using of materials. This bias was motivated by the closeness of the beaches of the golf and the type of mode of consumption of products presented in summer.
vincent coste combines the worlds of cheese and wine in france
rench architecture firm, vincent coste architecte locates ‘la fromagerie du passage’ at the center of an ancient benedictine cloister in the historic french city of aix-en-provence. the concept store marries the world of wine and cheese through carefully initiated design characteristics. three levels vertically displace the programs of the design brief in a local and contemporary fashion. the ground floor retail space includes an aromatic cheese tasting display that faces the wooden beech plank exhibition and sales desk, which are intended to appear as a bookshelf of bottles. two of the meilleurs ouvriers de france (best workers in france) attend the station, where they are in charge of refining and selecting the wine to develop a sustainable and informed consumption of the two products. the prestigious title refers to a competition held every four years to determine the best craftsmen of the country. decorating the surfaces are simple geometric concrete tiles that unite the space and give it a strong identity amongst other storefronts along the street.
the first floor mezzanine offers two dining options: a long counter directly above the double height ceiling, and a long table d’hôte, which is divided according to the circulation requirements of the employees and customers. the counter, a wide wooden balcony that lines the extents of one edge, generates the composition of the façade and reinforces the perception of the interior from the street.
the top level has allowed the establishment of a terrace within the context of the city’s rooftops. each component of furniture (shelves sale, tables, maturing cellar, and showcases sale) have been specifically created to optimize their use and respond to the technical demands of cheesemakers and winemakers.
