Year: Present – 2020

Overview: The 5,200 square foot house was built with a selection of materials chosen to reflect the regional landscape: quarry stone and locally-sources teak wood which are both resistant to weather variations and erosion. One of the main priorities was to allow the house to capture the stunning views of the ocean. However, because of the considerable slope and the tall building between the land and the shore, that proved to be a challenge. The solution for the problem was to relocate the entrance, the social areas and the infinity pool on the middle level of the three-storey structure. This way the incredible scenery can be admired without any obstructions and it feels like the ocean is at their doorstep.

Year: Present – 2020

Overview: The ONYX sofa is a 3-metre long seat made of carbon fiber and Volvic volcanic lava stone. It is the first in a line of made to measure furniture.

Separated by means of a sharp straight cut, Volvic stone has spent thousands of years filtering the water for its aquifer, before being hand carved and married to hi-tech carbon fibre with its very structured and technical texture;  its shapes precisely adjusted to the volcanic stone.

The ONYX sofa is the illustration of a series of unique pieces of furniture, made to measure, to suit the choice, origin and personality of the customer, but which always respects a common idea : the union, via a pronounced clear cut, between hyper-technological materials – carbon fibre, glass fibre, aluminium,…- and raw and natural materials – rock, wood, stone.

Forest Station


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: This unique architectural undertaking draws inspiration from an uncommon yet beautiful natural occurrence. Similar to how a tree’s roots will grow through and eventually divide a solid stone, the symmetrical structure features a wood-clad section situated directly in the center of a larger concrete framework. Not coincidentally, the tree-inspired building serves as a forest trekking station and sits right at the top of the canopy line, giving full visibility of the woodland area.
