Walk in the woods
In the south of France, in Cap Ferret, the french architectural firm Atelier du Pont has imagined a holiday home in the woods, imbued with charm and poetry, reminiscent of treehouses and outdoor games.
In the Cap Ferret peninsula, in France, the Atelier du Pont team of architects, made up of project managers Alice Berthelon, Aline Defert and Maciej Janakowski, designed an unusual holiday residence, both contemporary and playful. Composed of three elements opening onto a beautiful swimming pool, the villa respects the wooden architectural framework as well as the spirit of relaxation and trendy simplicity, characteristic of the region. Located in the middle of a pine forest of arbutus, yuccas and pines, the cabins cover 330 m², on a plot that slopes gently towards the sea. The challenge was to design a place in harmony with the landscape, by limiting its negative impact on the surrounding plant environment. This is how the house multiplies its visual openings to the exterior, which accentuate its relationship to nature. Its location allows the existing trees to be conserved as much as possible, while wood is mainly used for the facade, playing on the mimicry of the pine forest. Blending wonderfully into the topography of the land, the ensemble allows residents to benefit from privileged spaces of privacy and calm. The choice of a decoration in bright colors brings a creativity and a cheerfulness specific to childhood.
