Location: Cannes, France
This two bedroom property is situated in a historic bourgeois building on the Rue D'Antibes, two minutes walk from the Croisette in Cannes. Surface to Air were commissioned to create a high-quality modern interior, inspired by the Man Ray film, 'l'etoile de mer'. The primary design move was to open up the two front rooms, and convert them into one main living and dining space. The interiors have been decorated with original art pieces from renowned international architects, such as Will Alsop, Chris Wilkinson and Raphael Vinoly.
Working with Pringle Brandon Architects, Surface to Air developed a mixed use scheme consisting of a 1000 boat marina, 1000 new residences, retail, cinema and a new beach. The concept was to create a new development which responded to the context of the lowrise quality of the existing town, developed a new contemporary promenade and waterfront presence for the town while retaining the character and qualities of the existing area. The architecture responded to the shapes and forms of the surrounding seafaring artefacts and existing buildings.
