One can’t help but think immediately of Vincent Van Duysen when observing the color palette of this single-family house accomplished by Belgian architect Nicolas Schuybroek of NS Architects. No wonder since Nicolas has been working as project director for Van Duysen in Antwerp, handling various high-end architecture projects in Belgium and beyond. In August 2011, he started his own practice based in Brussels, Belgium.

This summer house located at the Côte d’Azur shows modern architecture at its finest; linear, geometric, elegant and beautiful, it artfully integrates into and adapts to its surrounding environment.
The single storey house holds prime position where it looks out onto Mediterranean Sea and the Lérins Islands with large openings for enjoying pool and sea-side views. It’s one great example of how concrete can look warm, inviting and very elegant when used in the entire home. The often rather harsh concrete look has been softened with furniture in neutral tones and wood-finishes which help to the overall minimalist scheme. G, x
