Its classic and vernacular codes
The comfort of a new construction
The location and view of Notre-Dame


Contemporary architecture, this superb architect's house of 142 m2 with patio and view of Notre-Dame de la Garde offers vertical living in a quiet street, in the heart of the Vauban district.

Built in 2019 by the Architecture 54 agency, the name of the house alludes to the particular topography of the Vauban district and its famous staircases. Born from the desire to integrate a new house into this traditional fabric without upsetting the landscape, the house adopts a new reading of Provençal tradition. Its style is inspired by all the architectures of the Mediterranean: the houses of Cadaqués, the Italian loggias, the artisanal materials like the Bejmat of North Africa. The architecture of the place plays with these sometimes exaggerated classic and vernacular codes, to reconnect with the picturesque, in a posture of critical regionalism. The patina of its outer envelope stands in contrast to the milky and graphic atmosphere of the interior spaces. The house on three levels is composed around a central aerial staircase in white steel. True nerve center of the house, it is flooded with light by a large glass roof. Each level offers everyone the possibility of having their own space. The ground floor offers an entrance through the double garage, as well as a laundry room with storage and technical area. The first floor is devoted to the children's area. There are two beautiful bedrooms with dressing room, office area and shared bathroom with double Alape sink. The staircase then leads to the living room with a cathedral ceiling, bright and open onto a small, unexpected Mediterranean patio. There is a remarkable view of Notre-Dame de la Garde and the picturesque Vauban district. Suspended bench in concrete, fireplace and green Bejmat magnify the large custom-made wooden opening. Further on, the custom-designed kitchen is clad in beige Mareuil stone and a bronze mirror splashback. On the mezzanine is revealed the parental suite, its bathroom and its dressing room. With a Corbusian look, this very pure space combines white parquet and Barcelona stone.

A vertical life, in a construction whose design, treatment of materials and furniture, contribute to a 'total work'.
