With a rustic simplicity that finds inspiration in the nearby 19th century bastides, the villas highlight the relationship between architecture, body, climate, and principles of construction both modern and historic.

Hollowed out from the earth, interiors are illuminated by wells of light while limits between interior and exterior are eliminated with broad window openings accommodated by the concrete structure.

Centralized around a patio, a skyward focus recalls the feeling of a Roman villa, open and exposed to shifting weather conditions.

Materials specified are simple, earthy and soft, with a greyish-white, smooth concrete used alongside natural stone flooring.  Amber toned sanded oak adds a warm element that also exudes a fragrance throughout.
