South of France Guest HouseResidential
Undertaken by the Nicholas Haslam Design Studio for a very important client, this early 20th Century, formerly the local rectory, is situated in the most picturesque locations a stone throw from the seafront in the South of France. From the façade which is that of fairly ordinary south of France village house, you enter the property and are immediately surprised by a supremely grand entrance hall. There were no architectural features, so it was a complete remodel internally. The Design Studio was privileged to work with the client’s own extraordinary art collection and even employed prominent Belgian paneling specialists to frame a selection of paintings. The client commissioned a ceramic artist from New York to produce a bespoke dining table – the end result is an incredible and spectacular table base that is made up of individual ceramic pieces to look like a pile of rocks.
