Architecture: Villa on the Côte d’Azur

An exceptional villa in the south of France by Atelier Barani. Rigorous refined monumentalism overlooking the Côte d’Azur. 

Reminiscent of Le Corbusier and John Pawson, the massive walls and overhangs shade and help to cool the building during the summer. Perfectly proportioned horizontals, and understated simplicity on the hills overlooking Cannes.

    Dear Barani Marc,
    I would like to talk or email. Could you write me or phone me at any time ?

  5. Ricardo Trujillo Says:

    I am impressed with the huge overhangs, could anybody tell us which system was used to structural design? Postensioning? Steel structure? I can not imagine how to support those overhangs.

    Hi there,

    My name is Kimberly and I work for a local production company based in New York.

    Wondering if you know the owner or a management company who is responsible for this house? I have a client who is interested in it.

    Thank you,
