Modern French Mediterranean

The architecture and interiors of La Baraquette’s properties have been inspired by Marseillan’s traditional buildings, its port, lagoon, oyster farmers and flora and fauna of the region. The elegant designs of the properties have created a relationship between the indoors and outdoors that enhances the vocational experience.

The properties

The apartments have taken their inspiration from the chic and unique port ambience and the village with its elegant ‘Maisons de Vignerons’. The patio villas, with their solid stone walls and roof-top terraces, evoke the spirit of Languedoc farmhouses. And the seafront villas, with their privileged ‘first in line’ position, look out onto the finest views in the Mediterranean.

The interiors

The interiors of all of the properties spring from ‘la vie Mediterranean’, featuring untreated timber, driftwood, sail boat flooring, white linen fabric, traditional lime plaster and recycled nautical artefacts from the lagoon. They also feature local stone and branches fromthe oyster beds combined with traditional materials, furnishings and our own palette of colours; beige-white, beige-grey and earthy colours.

Landscaping

All of the properties are set in Mediterranean gardens stocked with olive trees, pines, cypresses and shrubs as well as aromatic plants; lavender, rosemary, santoline, thyme, jasmine and many others.

The estate has its own vineyard landscape, leading to the seafront, with stunning views over the Thau Lagoon. To complete life outdoors there is an architect-designed extension of the seafront frontage of Marseillan’s port, connecting the village with the resort and the oyster farmers’ area.

Sustainability

La Baraquette is a project conceived under a sustainable commitment in accordance with the parameters of action against climate change. Our sustainable goals are to optimise the ecological footprint, reduce the internal energy consumptions and integrate the project as an extension of the existing local community. Designed as a car-free community to enhance pedestrian, cycling and electrical mobility inside the resort and around the region.

 

 

Movie: La Baraquette

“Architecture is not merely national but clearly has local ties in that it is rooted in the earth.”
- Alvar Aalto

EXCEPTIONNEL:
Lead architect, Joan Belagué of Slow Life Architects in Barcelona. "Our approach melds the materials and forms of southern French living with the clean, airy lines of contemporary architecture, to create spaces that are relaxing and rooted in a sense of place."
“We have imagined traditional materials such as untreated wood and driftwood, stone, flooring as you would find on sail boats, white fabrics, recycled nautical objects, lime washes. The atmosphere will be chic and relaxed.”
- Mar Reventos, Architect
