A Villa in St Tropez

Wrap-Over Pergola Updates a Villa in St Tropez

Architects Vincent Coste add an intriguing wrap-around and fold-over pergola to the side of this house in St Tropez, on the coast of France

This pergola creates an upper story walk-around space that shields the original house from the sun, and from sight.

Originally a charming, traditional coastal home with the Moorish influence much seen in this region of the south of France

… the walkway now creates a very different facade to the private side of the home

With its new pergola, now the villa is all about the pool.

The shade it casts brings welcome relief from the hot St Tropez sun

An additional renovation was to fence in the pool from the neighbors gaze with high walls and a stucco staircase.

Hidden in this new garden wall is an outdoor shower out in the sun

A clever lounging spot is created under the new staircase leading up to the walk around deck.

Inside, one bathroom is updated with the simplicity of timeless materials like this travertine stone bench

Walls were knocked out of the original cramped home, to open it up.

The exterior bathroom wall has also been taken out, bringing the garden in to the ensuite.

Likewise, the formerly dark kitchen space now opens the entire wall to the outside.

Tropical plantings form a graphic contrast to the white stucco and turquoise pool.

Instead of baking under a stifling sun, now the villa and its pool form a cool oasis

The new facade creates an odd intersection with the traditions of a sloped tiled roofline – but what fun to be able to walk for the first time through the neighbors’ trees!
