A contemporary design by Pietri Architectes, the MaisonA house is fit for 21st century living yet fits within the backdrop of its environment in Aix-en-Provence, France.

  • area / size 3,767 sqft
  • Year 2016
  • Location Aix-en-Provence, France,
  • Type House,
  • MaisonA is nestled on the side of the hill on the plot. The building is discreet, but its pure lines show great strength of character. The materials used are contemporary, but the whole fits in perfectly with the protected site. The main materials PietriArchitectes used a wood and white concrete.

    MaisonA, it is a simple volume built in integrally coloured concrete, with wooden shutters, set over a base anchored in the hillside. The MaisonA is located in a ground with big plots. The house is not in an allotment.

    Several houses were built in this ground and there is few co-visibility. We can place this ground between countryside and city.

    In the first floor, there are three bedrooms for kids with private spaces, as well as a living room for family. The principal view is in the living room on the ground floor, along the hallway.

    The bedrooms in the first floor offer beautiful views on the valleys and totally opened. Also, from the terraces there is a 360-degree view. Each room has it own bathroom. These rooms are independent and served by a long illuminated hallway. A common relaxing space brings together the whole bedrooms.
