  • This house was built on a monolithic slab and stands in the bedrock of the mountain which allows for spectacular views of nature. This is an exceptional place to spend the weekends, work remotely and one day settle down full time.

    Marie-André and Jérôme have opted for a peace haven, that is an invitation to spending time with family and friends. Their house offers a panoramic view of the surrounding nature while remaining discreet. 

    Though it is contemporary, it is seamlessly integrated in its environment and will perfectly evolve with it. The flat roof and the wood cladding, which will become grey with time, help to enhance the fluidity of the lines.

    The sustainable and ecological materials used convey a certain softness and element of design to this interior. The countertops and kitchen island are made in quartz as well as glass from recycled bottles, the shower is made out of tadelakt, the ceiling in the living areas of weathered pine panelling...

    he heated floors on both levels are made of concrete with pigments added to create a slightly ochre, warm tint. As with all houses built by Belvedair, LED lighting and low water consumption devices were also installed.

    This passive solar house offers great resilience to weather changes. The envelope of the building is highly energy efficient with an ideal orientation. The south side of the house is adorned with abundant fenestration, to flood the living areas and the multipurpose living room upstairs with natural light. The screened-in room benefits from a southeast orientation, which is perfect for enjoying a morning coffee in the sun. The bedrooms, bathrooms and mechanical spaces are mainly distributed on the northern slope. The layout of the top floor and the beautiful terrace give an incredible view of the surrounding nature.
