For the Carcassonne Hills Golf and Health Resort, a planned eco-conscious development in southern France, TVA has provided conceptual design work for the residences along the golf course, which are conceived as affordable second homes for individuals looking to enjoy a community-spirited and healthy lifestyle in this beautiful region.
The residences, which encourage indoor-outdoor living and accentuate the connection to nature, have simple, efficient floor plans and utilize the building materials common to the rustic, vernacular architecture of the region. The residences lend themselves to off-site, modular prefabrication, and can be adapted to create units of varying size and configuration, including two-story concepts. The spacious interiors feature vaulted ceilings with exposed roof trusses, and glass walls which open to private terraces.
The concepts are envisioned for the first two residential “hamlets”, as part of the first phase of the overall development of the resort.
