The grand residence opens up towards the breathtaking Bay of Saint Tropez and offers unabated views of the natural landscape. With design that is essentially simple minimal and contemporary the lavish home showcases a design response to the challenges presented by the exceptional site.
Designed by Moloney Architects the uses a cantilevered structure to not only get past the conundrum of a sloped site but also to offer the best possible views of the landscape around the home.
