This Saint Tropez Home Features an Impressive Pergola

— July 12, 2014 — Art & Design
The 'Maison L2' is a beautiful Saint Tropez home designed by Vincent Coste Architects.

The design features a gazebo made from wood-clad steel that functions as air traffic control around the perimeter of the house. The gazebo surrounds a central pool, which has been extended by a large, over-hanging pergola. The pergola also allowed the architects to offer "generous, double-height spaces [,] as well as areas sheltered from the sun." Inside, the house has been organized to make the most of the impressive views.

Stylistically speaking, the home features crisp white walls that are accompanied by wood and steel furnishings. The result is a home that stays fresh and contemporary, as well as reflects light around the home.
Trend Themes
1. Sustainable Architecture - The use of wood-clad steel and energy-efficient design in the gazebo and pergola presents an opportunity for sustainable architecture innovations.
2. Open Concept Living - The generous, double-height spaces created by the pergola inspire open-concept living designs with versatile, fluid spaces.
3. Optimizing Natural Light - The design's use of white walls and strategic placement of windows and skylights highlights the importance of optimizing natural light in residential architecture.
Industry Implications
1. Architectural Design - Architects can explore innovative use of materials and designs to create sustainable, open-concept homes like the Maison L2.
2. Furniture and Interior Design - The incorporation of wood and steel furnishings in the home's design opens up opportunities for furniture and interior designers to create complementary pieces.
3. Window and Skylight Manufacturing - The emphasis on natural light in the design of the Maison L2 creates opportunities for manufacturers to develop energy-efficient windows and skylights with innovative features.
