Not far from Saint-Tropez, Vincent Coste‘s Maison D1 is a residential property that comes complete with beautiful panoramic views thanks to its careful placement on the face of some steeply inclined terrain. Designed as a collection of offset volumes, the five-bedroom house offers plenty of individual privacy, along with shared spaces such as the substantial outdoor terrace and complementary infinity pool. Apart from the main structure, architects also made use of the lower parts of the hill to accommodate more functional parts of the home.
The top level of the house is dedicated to sleeping, which is why four of the five bedrooms are located there. The next level down functions as a mix of living and lounging space, which features an open-plan kitchen, living room, extensive outdoor terrace, and the unmissable infinity pool. Lower still, parts of the hill have been designed as a playground for the children, a garden which offers an alternative place to relax, and parking on the lowest part of the incline.
Thanks to careful positioning of the upper rooms, nearly all of them can benefit from the excellent ocean view, while still maintaining their privacy. There are also floor-to-ceiling windows across much of the house, which helps to enhance the views and ensure there is always ample light. For the parts of the home where sharing is the main intention, minimal design and lots of open space make sure family members can cohabit peacefully.
