Our most beautiful architect houses

Architectural follies, oversized areas and volumes, extraordinary gardens, our architect-designed houses and contemporary villas are avant-garde luxury properties, with modern comfort and original style.

Designed by an architect, the plan of these luxury properties is unique. It meets the precise demands of an owner who wished to have a contemporary prestige home built to measure, unique, like a commissioned “Haute-Couture” dress. The Mercure real estate group offers for sale enchanting contemporary villas that privilege the entry of light, complex spaces and intertwined volumes, beautifully set in their landscape.

Architect’s houses bear witness to an era, an architect, a history

If some architect’s houses are classified or registered as Historic Monument such as the Villa Noailles, the Villa Savoye, the Villa Majorelle, others are more discreet architectural jewels imagined meeting the desires of space, high-tech comfort and extraordinary views.

It is with the advent of materials such as glass, steel and concrete that what we now call architect’s houses or contemporary villas appeared. Technological innovations have pushed back architectural possibilities since the beginning of the 20th century. They made certain extravagant luxury properties enter the legend of prestigious real estate, prized by visionary clients and with them, their architects such as Le Corbusier, Robert Mallet-Stevens and Alvar Aalto. 

Contemporary villas fit stylishly into their environment

The architect’s houses are designed taking into account the landscape in which they are built. They sublimate it, envelop it, and blend in harmoniously. Perched in a tree, on a waterfall, on a hillside, buried in a wood, a hanging garden, these architectural follies often involve landscape designers from the moment the plans are drawn up in order to build a unique luxury home in osmosis with the surrounding nature.

Mercure Real Estate Group’s architectural homes maximize comfort and energy savings

The majority of our architectural homes offered for sale are newly built. Detailed plans of these homes are available. Sometimes their construction and equipment (home automation, swimming pool, spa, alarm system, heating and air conditioning equipment) are still under a ten-year warranty for those built less than 10 years ago. With thermal regulations requiring the construction of low-energy buildings (RT 2012) or passive houses (RT 2020), these architect-designed houses or contemporary villas offered by the Mercure real estate group provide interior comfort and limit energy costs. Thus, these luxury properties are doubly reassuring and guarantee a risk-free investment.
