A domain of eco-lodges set in the heart of the countryside in an unique naturel environment near Saint Remy de Provence.
Virginie and Yvan decided on a change in life-style and embarked on a project allowing them to live and work together daily. Decision taken, the couple decide on the creation of an eco-friendly hosting site perfectly integrated with the surrounding nature. Yvan, public works director, enlists the help of his friend Benoit Gillet, an architect. Benoit gets down to the drawing board, Yvan has fun with his mechanical digger to prepare the earthworks ant the landscaping and Virginie takes care of the decoration of the final project.
The domain of eco-lodges sets in the heart of the countryside in an unique naturel environment near Saint Remy de Provence.
Subtle combination of nature and design sit in the typical mediterranean vegetation. The buildings are timber-framed and wood-clad with sumptuous panoramic views of the valleys lying all around.
This tourist site was designed to reduce a maximum the global environment footprint. It consists of four 50m2 lodges, a 13m2 maritime container, a seminar room of 120m2 and a 200m2 house, all on a plot covering 10700m2. The estate benefits from a priviledged location, at the limit of the a building zone in the foothills of a South of France mountain range.
The Global Architectural Plan designed a series of single-story buildings, slotted into the slope thus minimising their visuel impact from the road in and on the surrounding countryside.
To the East is the parking area, parallel to this is the West facing seminar room, the terrace and the swimming pool. A housing unit with private terrace is in the North end of the building.
Following the desire to provide visual screens plus wind protection from the mistral, stone walls in the form of gabions, structure the footpaths and organise the different areas. To the South sited on a slight slope to reduce vis-a-vis and hence improve privacy are the 4 eco-lodges: 3 of wood-modular design and 1 a maritime container.
Each lodge, comfortably furnished , summer lounge and dining area, gives onto a wooden terrace The architectural choice was give to a feel ‘inside/outside’, the entire design fits into the surrounding nature .
The particularity of this project lies in an architectural approach which is both respectful the environment and uses state- of-the-art technology thereby establishing a dialogue between the simplicity of the materials chosen and thermal perfomance.
This tourist site was designed to reduce a maximum the global environment footprint. It consists of :
- a seminar room of 120m2
- 200m2 house (that can be sold with the domain, with extra payment for a global price of 2 990 000€)
