Honoring History In Cutting Edge Apartments

Across the world, architecture serves as an exemplar of culture and history of the place it existed in. Rightly or wrongly, former Soviet states are often remembered by architecture, and the expansive brown bricks of New York City are now highly sought after as memorials to the history of the city.

Today, apartment developments are springing up across the world, often under similar, but unique, designs, that hark back to older generations. From classic but futuristically designed apartments to low-cost prefabs, the designs and architectural philosophies that shape city environments last generations. Technology and taste is helping to shape new housing stock for the 21st century in a way that captures the creativity of days gone by.

The Glass House on the Cap d’Antibes / by David Price Design

British designer David Price, who works out of offices in Provence and on the Côte d’Azur, together with his Anglo-French-American team, has completed a show-stopping ‘Glass House’ for a British client on the Cap d’Antibes. The plot is a rarity in the area; not only facing the sea-front, but also east-facing and on an almost-flat piece of land, covering 2,000 sq m. The views from the new property extend from the snow-capped southern Alps alongside Nice to the coast towards Monaco and Italy, as well as, in the near foreground, the bay and headland of La Garoupe.
‘Right at the beginning of the project, the client purchased the site and, with it, an existing, rather ugly 1950s house’, David Price explained. ‘He initially asked us for a major remodel, but his vision was so complex and ambitious that it made vastly more sense to us to demolish and start again, extending the vision further. Happily, the client agreed.’
