Oiseau Bleu

Best Implemented Restoration / Reconstruction Project

About the project
The project of a villa on the French Côte d'Azur features bionic facade design echoed by the interiors. The original building was in critical condition but the local laws prohibited its demolition.  The designers had to solve a challenging yet exiting task of reconstructing and integrating the old building into the new facility.
The inner layouts have vague boundaries and look over the picturesque marine landscapes outside. Careful choice of long-lasting and sustainable clean materials ensured eco-friendliness of the project. The light composition presenting a flock of glass birds floating in the central room of the villa is the best illustration of the project concept.
