Le Domaine de Provence
This home was built on the premise of longevity. Family structures change over time and this home was intentionally designed to reflect and cradle those implied changes. This was achieved by making the home appear to be built over the course of many generations. Additions were made, windows and doors removed and added, the landscaping is a collection of heirloom plants and urns; Every part contributes to the narrative that this home will be here long after the current residents have handed over the stewardship to their children. Despite being a home full of every modern amenity, we selected materials to create a variance of vintage within the architecture. Our clients’ are worldly travelers, spending many wonderful times in the south of France. Their vision was clear, they desired a home that would feel as if it had been a part of the earth for generations, taking on new structural growth over time. The stone, roof and details vary throughout the home to allude to the changes made during the evolution of the home.
This estate is poised on the top of a ridge so the owner can oversee the surrounding groves and bottom land. It captures the last drop of evening sun and breathtaking sunsets. This elevation all but promises it will endure the harshest storms mother nature can produce. With these considerations in mind, every material in the home was selected to stand the test of time and weather the elements.
