An architect wood house with a vieuw in Uzès

 Located in the village of Uzès, on 1100 m2 of sloping land is a , wooden house of 145 m2, and a swimming pool.

Martine, was willing to start a new house projetc. She desired to have an environnment respectfull and bioclimatic house. Her land offered wondefull views and what could be better then to live « on the canopy « ?

Martine, asked Benoit Gillet, an architect specialist in bioclimatic and wood constructions to design her dream housen with endless openings to enjoy the views in particular the olive trees.

Particular care has been taken to optimize the sensation of « inside and outside ».

The fondamental idea is inspired by the mediterranean house, protected from « the cold north wind (Mistral) and opened to the sun ont he south.

The heating is provided by a high-efficiency pellet stove … hot sanitary water is produced by a solar roof pannels.

The winter garden (35m2), covered, in winter by polycarbonate plates structure and in summer, with shade sails.

The « green » roof (sedum) reduces the visual impact on the landscape and contributes to the high bioclimatic performances.

Local shops are 5 mns drive away.This house is at 35mns from Uzès and Nîmes by car.

Our favourite is the privileged environment and a “magical” circular view overlooking the « the cevennes » !

SOLD – Loft in Camargue : Vinyard redesigned

Mas in the countryside with a loft and a traditional house  surrounding the Camargue nature near Arles

Henri immediately spotted on the evolutionary potential of the “Mas Camarguais”. Stéphanie was a bit difficult to convince, “what hard work to do” ! : The annex of the Mas, was a little abandoned. The high ceilings and rough roof, would provide an incredible playground for a young architect.

The Mas, is a true parallelepiped and has two antinomic parts : a space renovated in a traditional manner, and in its extension transformed in a contemporary loft with generous volumes, corresponding to the old annexes. The exterior architecture of the property has been perfectly preserved and renovated respecting traditional constructions.

The farmhouse looks like the Camargue nature, all in contrast. This restoration combines the architectural biases between tradition and modernity, with the use of innovative materials, such as corten for stairs, polished concrete for the floor, valchromat for the kitchen, as well as materials in the respect constructions of camarguais mas.

This mas, offers 340m2 of living space, is located in a village near Arles, on a plot of 1.6 hectares, surrounded by nature Camargue.

The entrance of the house overlooks the Loft of 130m2, bathed in light by metal canopies all width facing south. It is organized in different living spaces. It includes a lounge area, a fireplace in the DRC, a dining area, a kitchen located half a level above. An additional level above, a  largely bedroom, with its independent bathroom and a spacious other bedroom in continuity which can be used as a dressing room.

The other part of approximately 210m2, in the extension of the loft, is more traditional looking and is composed of a living room and its chimney, and an office in RDC and upstairs, 2 other rooms with each its bathroom.

Arles :10mn, Aix en Provence :50mn, Nîmes :35 mn, Saint Rémy de Provence :30mn and Marseille :1h00mn.

Our favorite for the volumes and brightness of the loft. This out-of-the ordinary place, in  Camargue, offers many perspectives of evolution and trasformations.

La maison de Ramonétage : Dwelling in a former vineyard near Sommieres

House on the south side updated by an architect near Nîmes and Sommières

The oppidum Mouressipe overlooks a steep valley where all the trees of the garrigue abound. The presence of springs and a clay soil gave birth to The Vaunage known in ancient Gaelic as ‘the great clearing’.

Were Beatrice and her architect husband inspired by the presence of these venerable yews?

Their house, an integral part of an estate situated in a vast park of centenary  trees, is a short distance from the medieval town of Sommieres and near Nimes, roman origin.  The stone building consists of an interior, 220m2, completely renovated by a Swiss architect; the exterior, 560m2, is private with garden, terrasse and courtyard. But it is all possible to swim in the pool, drink a cocktail at the pool house, wander through the park or sit dreaming on one of the stone benches as the house is in partial co-property with the Domaine.

The renovation is intemporal :  the historic building, the views, the noble building materials, wood beams, tile floors, all have been conserved.

Up a flight of stone steps into the long west-facing main room with its generous fireplace.  A French window gives onto the terrasse and intimate garden.  The dining area is opposite on the east side with views over the hill, park and surrounding countryside.  The parental suite is also on this floor.

On the last floor (level 3) there are, in succession, a bedroom (window to the west), an office (window facing east onto the view), a bathroom, and a large bedroom (low window to the south overlooking the park).

The ground floor consists of two restored vaulted cellars in line, now used as a storage area but open to all possibilities.  Finally hidden in a discreet backyard, an office, obviously designed by an architect, a quiet space to read, listen to music, study….  Finally, a utility and a boiler room complete the whole.

Sommieres :15 mins .  Nîmes: 25 mins. Entrance Montpellier 45 mins

Our favorite for the privilege of life on a Domaine, simplicity shared, the peacefulness of a park
