The architects on this project in the south of France have created a striking home which makes a feature of concrete and wooden shutters 

MaisonA is nestled on the side of a hill on this plot near Aix-en-Provence in France. The house was designed by Pietri Architectes who were founded in 2001 by Jean Baptiste Pietri, a graduate of the Paris-Belleville architecture school. Pietri Architectes are located in Paris and have about twenty partners. 

The building is discreet, but its pure lines show great strength of character. The main materials that PietriArchitectes used were wood and white concrete. The materials used are contemporary, but the whole fits in perfectly with the protected site. MaisonA, it is a simple volume built from integrally coloured concrete, with wooden shutters, set over a base anchored in the hillside. This individual house was built in the Maruège neighbourhood in an area which features several big plots.

Regarding the house arrangement, on the first floor, there are three bedrooms for kids with private spaces, as well as a living room for family. The principal view is from the living room on the ground floor, along the hallway. The bedrooms on the first floor offer beautiful views over surrounding valleys are totally open. Also, from the terraces there is a 360-degree view. Each room has it own bathroom. These rooms are independent and served by a long illuminated hallway. A common relaxing space brings together all the bedrooms.
