More and more, adult couples are choosing to live in communal residences rather than taking on the fiscal and physical commitments that come with being home owners. Rather than being solely responsible for the upkeep of things like yards, swimming pools, and the general area around their homes, people who live in communal residences split those responsibilities between them, which often means that the homes stay even more well put together and beautiful looking than usual! The Ramatuelle residential project, which was completed by architectural designer Laurence Sonck in 2015, is no exception!
This pristine looking contemporary residence, is the perfect blend between comfortable privacy and community living. Each separate residence features a beautifully spacious master bedroom with enough room for two to live comfortably and harmoniously together. As if that’s not nice enough, one entire wall, the one facing the gorgeous back yard space, is a floor to ceiling window, letting residents throw open the curtains each morning to look out into the fresh morning.
The decor throughout the rest of the home is a sparkling white for the most part as well, but the designers took care not to make it feel cold or sterile in its pristine, monochromatic scheme. That’s what the brightly coloured wall art and accents are for! Where colour isn’t feature to add style, the designers made sure to include some type of visual art piece or lighting feature that makes up for the lack of bright tone. The under-lit stairs leading to the back patio, for example, are nothing short of stunning, while the abstract piece in the side yard immediately sets the tone for modern style and contemporary taste when visitors arrive.
In case that’s not quite enough appeal for you, the outdoor water features are sure to take your breath away. In the backyard, sparkling clear water appears to fill the pool right up to the very edge in an infinity style. In addition to that, a smaller pool runs alongside the lighted stairs from the house, adding a whimsical aesthetic to the residence, as though it’s more of a holiday home. The overall effect is one that has us ready for sun a relaxation!
