After finishing this renovation of their apartment in Nice, a couple of English clients asked us for a new project, for a house they had just acquired in Mont Boron: to be a house for holidays, weekends, and after retirement on the Côte d’Azur.
It was necessary to preserve the soul of this stone house, simple, sober, and as we discovered inhabited by books. To bring it more modern features: we outfitted the 2 floors, the garden, and installed bedrooms and bathrooms for the guests.
A large Sistema System library by Piero Lissoni pour Porro, will be installed on 15 meters long, which will give the entrance a reminiscence of past furnishings, and offer the owner a frame for his home office.
bed, and vintage DCW chairs by Ray & Charles Eames, Herman Miller editions from the 1950s. The work “Encrier” is a painting by Piotr Klemensiewicz.
The living room is in the cool spaces of the house, under the stones. Antonio Citterio’s Michel Sofa by B & B Italia, Oswaldo Borsani P 60 armchair fromTecnoand Antonio Citterio’s Xilos dining table for Maxalto. Conference chairs by Eero Saarinen from Knoll.
The Bulthaup b3 kitchen is that for a couple who are lovers of good food and conviviality: it is the link with the living room, and has a very nice wine cellar!
The artistHenri Olivier, who contributed to the design of the garden, has produced 2 very beautiful pieces for this project: a heavy and powerful bench that organizes the living room, and a monolith of charred wood, placed like a stele in the garden, which invites meditation.
