Mas C – A 19th-century mas

Provence, France

Located on the coast of Provence, between Marseille and Toulon.

To enhance the « Jardin à la Française » inground uplights and spotlights have been carefully placed to highlight only selected trees. The aim here is to reveal more than provide a strong wash of light.

It was decided not to light the garden pond, making it a mysterious dark area where surrounding elements would reflect.

The terrasse surrounding the mas is lit by low height bollards with louvred optics, and spotlights hidden in the trees both uplighting the foliage and lighting selected areas on the ground (pétanque, dining table).
