Contemporary house with pool

Near to Fontainebleau (77)




340 m²
5 Bedrooms
1 bathroom


Sculptural architecture in the heart of a wooded park.

The plasticity and constructive qualities of this astonishing house are reminiscent of the airport buildings designed by the architect and engineer Paul Andreu.

Spanning 340 m², the house is laid out over two levels. On the garden level, a lounge, a large bedroom and a bathroom with balneotherapy overlook the pool through large portholes. On the ground floor, the south-west-facing reception rooms are separate from the four bedrooms and master suite on the east side. This level also includes a living room of more than 100 m2 that opens onto the garden through large bay windows, a large library and a kitchen. An annex building houses a triple garage and the lushly planted garden has a chalet for children.

Situated in Seine-et-Marne, in very pleasant surroundings on the edge of the Fontainebleau forest, this house is a stone’s throw from Barbizon, a romantic village that inspired many 19th-century Impressionist artists. Surrounded by the plains painted by Jean-François Millet (1814-1875), now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the house nestles in 1 hectare of landscaped parkland. Its exceptional location means that it is close to local shops and Fontainebleau’s amenities (international lycée, equestrian club, golf course), and only 25 minutes from Paris via Melun station.

Sculptural concrete on the edge of the forest

In contrast with the surrounding nature, this house with its white walls and cut-out volumes is a testament to the plastic and constructive possibilities offered by reinforced concrete. In this house, all the inverted shells are connected by steel tie rods around a central pylon, visible in the living room. These shells are cantilevered and support different rooms. The largest supports the dining room.
