This project implements a narrative rooted in a territory with Mediterranean and Alpine influences: pastel ochres, terracotta buildings, villages with narrow streets that settle on rocky peaks, and a thousand-faceted vegetation. Sitting on the slope of an existing golf course, a group of suites and services dedicated to the hotel industry unfolds a new topography, supporting a landscape rich in contrast and which offers singular views of the distant and nearby landscape: the Luberon Massifs and the Villars quarries. Like a link between the earth and the sky, the roofs will protect the suites, the external circulations and the terraces from the sun. Favoring a bioclimatic and “low-tech” design, this project aims to blur the perception between architecture and nature, between exterior and interior.
