Contemporary Villa, Aix-en-Provence

Contemporary single-storey villa with swimming pool near Aix-en-Provence

A contemporary Mediterranean house, perfectly integrated into the surrounding vegetation: this was the brief from Luxembourg clients for their holiday home near Aix-en-Provence, at the foot of Mont Saint-Victoire. To respect the privileged landscaped environment, rich in Provencal species of all sizes, the architects designed an architecture winding through the dense and varied vegetation. The volumes of the house undulate over the land, skirting the slender trees to preserve this protective natural canopy.

A luxury landscaping design

To respect the privileged landscaped environment, rich in Provencal species of all sizes, the architects designed a contemporary villa winding through the dense and varied vegetation. The volumes of the house undulate across the land, skirting the slender trees to preserve this protective natural canopy. Our approach to high-end landscaping is to make the most of the existing landscape environment and integrate it with the built environment. In each project, landscaping and architecture are considered as a whole, in which interior and exterior spaces interact and balance each other.

Vielliard & Francheteau’s architecture always offers a strong link between architecture and nature, thanks in particular to the use of large glass walls that decompartmentalize the space, creating a unique immersive experience.The very articulation of interior spaces integrates existing nature, as evidenced by the interior architecture of the villa divided by a central patio. The patio brings natural light into the living spaces and preserves the existing vegetation at the heart of the house.

An emblematic luxury villa

The facades of this modern villa blend contemporary raw concrete with stone cladding echoing traditional local architecture. Here, the style of architects Vielliard & Francheteau is recognizable by the characteristic stratum formed by the terrace roof overhanging the facades, which slips gently under the branches of the umbrella pines. The interior spaces take full advantage of the outdoors, thanks to panoramic sliding windows that erase any boundary with the landscape.

Only the floor reminds us of this boundary, from the waxed concrete of the interior to the ipe wood slats of the terrace, which extends down a few steps to the pool area. The garden has been redesigned to enhance this harmonious dialogue between buildings and plants: low stone walls delimit the terraces up to the pool and pool house, and wooden slats reinforce the natural character of the paths.

A villa with high-end interior architecture

The interior architecture of this modern villa is faithful to the Lifestyle universe of architects Thomas Vielliard and Jacques Francheteau. Driven by ambitious projects, they aim to offer a unique experience of luxury and refinement by creating remarkable living spaces within each of their architectures. The Aix-en-Provence villa features a luxury sauna and an exceptional wine cellar.

On the outskirts of Aix-en-Provence, this contemporary villa in concrete, glass and stone perfectly embodies the signature of French architects Vielliard & Francheteau: subtle articulation of volumes, fluid circulation between interior and exterior, total decompartmentalization of spaces, and a raw treatment of materials that soberly emphasizes their intrinsic qualities.
