After Aix-en-Provence, we find the signature style of Thomas Walter and his Atelier Ordinaire in Beaune in Burgundy. Working alongside Camille and Guillaume Boillot, wine growers who are passionate about the region where they live, the architect has created a truly unique work. It represents a new, bespoke lifestyle with nature at its forefront. To ensure that the property where the house was to be built from pine – a hundred-year-old vineyard called Mon Caprice – would retain its character, the couple allowed their idea to mature over an extended period. What they had in mind: a timeless architectural style, with flowing spaces bathed in light. As far as the layout was concerned, there were no restrictions other than an absolute desire to ensure that everything was as open as possible. This way of working was essential to the lifestyle of the family, who love to spend time together more than anything else. All five of them. The Strasbourg-based studio achieved this balance thanks to Camille and Guillaume’s thorough and precise searches. Tiles and muted pastel tones contrast with the wood, with fabric being incorporated including linen and coarse cotton. Nothing in the living space – which is intended to become a showroom over time – is left to chance. By contrast, the furniture is much more eclectic, collected from the couple’s travels or simply inherited from their previous home. Exceptional pieces that naturally found a place in this vast space where the omnipresence of the rural landscape blends with children’s laughter. The Socialite Family is delighted to present an interior with a powerful voice of its own – in which it resembles its owners very closely!
