IT’S FUNNY WHEN a resolute maximalist finds herself drawn to a space so filled with clean lines and concrete, especially when typical ventures into modernism are often tempered with the ornate. Perhaps as a summer home along the coast and surrounded by palm trees might something this spare (the walls are bare and free from artwork) be appealing. Whatever the reason, this home in Cap d’Antibes, France by Nicolas Schuybroek Architects has a definite charm about it…
S House Cap d’Antibes, France 2009 — 2012 Residential
This single story holiday house is a superb example of elegance and minimalism. Linear and geometric, it delicately and artfully blends into its stunning French Riviera environment.
Located in a landscape of unique beauty, the house looks out on to the Mediterranean Sea and the Lérins Islands.
It is a unique constructive volume with stretched-out openings on the seaside views and the outside pool where continuity between carefully exterior and interior elements soften the harshness of the concrete volume. Simple, honest and well-proportioned architecture is seamlessly incorporated in the beautiful landscape.
