Mas des Oliviers
Architecture and art de vivre in the Luberon.
This 18th-century farm, restored by Lafourcade Architecture, has become the holiday home of a couple in love with the art of living. In this typically Provençal landscape planted with olive trees, lavender and wheat, the owners have continued to work the land. The challenge facing French architect Alexandre Lafourcade was considerable: to transform the dilapidated old house into a luminous and agreeable holiday home.
Contemporary architecture hand-in-hand with tradition.
Throughout the house the same principle reigns supreme: the harmonious blending of rustic charm and contemporary art. Room dimensions were left unchanged, but given a contemporary makeover and enhanced by the major works carried out to fill the house with light.
