Brutalism in Cap Bénat

Posted on Mon, 18 Dec 2023 by midcenturyjo

Nestled amid umbrella pine, this villa in Cap Bénat reigns over the sea from a 45-meter-high rocky promontory. Originally designed in 1971 by André Lefèvre and Jean Aubert, the house has been extended recently by Atelier du Pont. The house’s horizontal design integrates with the landscape, featuring terraces akin to layered retaining walls cascading towards the sea. The new extension harmoniously complements the existing stone structure, extending seamlessly into terraces overlooking the ocean while the new infinity pool merges with the horizon.

Shelley says:

Beautiful. The pool is beyond beautiful.
