French Store Architecture: Contemporary luxury shopping development in southern France

25 Aug 2008

65 Croisette – Boutiques on La Croisette at Cannes

Architect: Moatti and Rivière

Cannes Boutique - Boutiques La Croisette Cannes

Alain Moatti and Henri Rivière have laid out a set of eight new luxury boutiques for the Codic group at the foot of the Miramar, between the Carlton and the Martinez.

Quality and bold creativity produce a building that has a distinct feminine look, in curve and counter-curve, partly sheltered by an opalescent patterned glass veil that captures sunlight and reflects it: ‘praising shadow’. A ‘cut diamond’ glittering on the sea front, honed by technology informed by advanced research in tandem with the age-old skill of an Italian master glazier.

The veil adds an illusion of lightness, a magnificent impression of effortless balance. It also adds glamour by its purity, and sets the building in a state of weightlessness, besides waving to the sea and the sky, miming the rhythms of nature.

The set brings something never-before-seen in this part of Cannes, adding to the sparkling effervescence of the French Riviera. A metaphor of elegance and luxury born of an act of creation, endowing the city with beauty as project.

This ambitious project was realized thanks to the willpower of our client, the real estate developer Codic, which trusted in our creativity and gave us all the necessary means to manage this challenge.

“Building the future is an art” this saying is a perfect illustration of Codic real estate developer’s ambitions, that are to create activity centres, strengthen their attraction from the financial and social points of view, and create areas which are pleasant to live in.
