Location: ZAC des Bords du Lac, Quartier Nouvel Aix, Aix-les-Bains, department of Savoie, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, southeastern France

Les Cabanes du Lac

Contained in a regulated space defined by step-like volumetrics, the project has a heart of green, highlighted from the street by the design of the entranceway. The natural materials chosen, like zinc and wood, marry perfectly with this exceptional site by the lake in Aix-les-Bains.

The architectural design took its inspiration from children’s tree houses and serves to confirm the close connection between the project and the sky. The two apartments on stilts, suspended, marking the entrance to the building, put the garden into perspective and infuse the project with a strong identity that offers residents a living space with a unique set of volumes.

Perfectly integrating into its environment and open towards the lake and the mountains, the building, attired in materials that match the site perfectly, adeptly calls upon solids and voids to create elegant plays of light and substance.

About PietriArchitectes
Founded in 2001 by Jean Baptiste Pietri, graduated from Paris-Belleville architecture school, PietriArchitectes located in Paris has up to about twenty partners. The agency acts especially in Parisian region and South-East of France, with a great diversity of projects. The programs of all types, as well public as private, go to an individual house, an office tower or even a luxury hotel.

The agency claims an architectural approach both demanding and poetic, built and developed around its own philosophy: “the romantic rationalism”. This concept connects well a constructive, strict and optimized conception to a precise and meaningful site analysis. The architectures are elegant, soft and timeless. The material nobility takes a primordial place in the project’s conception. This way, PietriArchitectes drew a unique ceramic for the undulating back frontage of La Barquière, a 62-housing program delivered in November 2016 in Marseille.

In 2014, the agency won two awards: a mention at Les Trophées VMZinc in the “2014 collective housing” category for Carré Seine, a housing project in Issy-les-Moulineaux, and “Le Geste d’Or” prize for the rehabilitation of La Major cathedral in Marseille. In 2016, PietriArchitectes won with two other agencies the international competition for the Rhine embankments renovation in Huningue. PietriArchitectes is also the winner of two other projects: on the side with Linkcity, for a student residence, a hotel and a nursing home conception located in Asnières-sur-Seine, but also with Vinci Immobilier for a housing program in Neuilly-sur-Seine.

In addition, the agency delivered these last months two projects: La Barquière in Marseille and La MaisonA, a private house in Aix-en-Provence.

Many projects are under construction, such as a luxury hotel named l’Hôtel des Roches in Le Lavandou, a senior residence in Brétigny-sur-Orge or even a housing program in Sarcelles.
