This client had drawn the design for his dream villa on the back of a paper serviette on a long haul flight. Having purchased a plot of land on a sloping plot on top of a hill in the Languedoc National Park he wanted the house to float in the trees with huge picture windows and views directly into the forest. The final design included two terraces, a mezzanine and an elevated pool was added afterwards. It's a fabulous house. From the salon you really are floating in the canopy of the trees. All thanks to a G & T and inflight boredom.

"This house makes the most of its sloping panoramic plot, it floats in the trees, suspended above the ground on concrete stilts."
