Nestled in one of France’s most well-known regions, interior and architecture firm Humbert & Poyet have tackled and successfully executed the interiors of a bespoke wine estate, designing an intimate and urban setting which redefines the traditional design codes of a wine estate.
The Monaco-based firm ‘respected the requirements to a working winery while combining functionality and aesthetics.’ The final result is a sublime combination of raw and contemporary materials with noble elements. Concrete beautifully complements aged oak, leather, brass and marble fittings to evoke a unique character throughout the entire establishment.
Flow and light play important roles in the layout, sense of volume and overall feel of the interiors – large glazed doors with brass handles separate the respected rooms and yet unite them in their visual fluidity. Drawing inspiration from the surrounding landscapes of the south of France, Humbert & Poyet punctuated notes of sage and sepia, reminiscent of the colours of Provence and its green vineyards and soil, within each pocket of the estate whilst retaining its high-end setting and refined and modern feel.
As the duo note, ‘the living spaces are inviting, an Aegean blue adorns the walls and harmonises the brass of the hanging lights and sconces, creating a vivid contrast between the colours and materials, urban lines and warm atmospheric lines.’ This utmost attention to detail and aim to present an unexpected experience of Provence is injected within each zone, furnishing and decoration of the environment. Achieving a fresh, modern and striking space, Humbert and Poyet’s bespoke touch is evident within the design to boast an opulent setting ‘for living memorable moments in the heart of Provence.’
