Villa La Vue Panoramique

Residential Renovation of a Villa in Montjean

Full Panorama, Sunrise to Sunset
Situated on a hilltop near the end of the Montjean peninsula, the site of Villa La Vue Panoramique does indeed live up to its name.  The full panorama of its view stretches sunrise to sunset:  from the bays of Marigot and Grand Cul-de-Sac in the east, northwards to the wide-open Atlantic Ocean and finally settling on Pointe Milou and beyond towards neighboring islands Saint Martin and Anguilla in the west.

Nonetheless, the original incarnation of the villa did more to obscure the views rather than enhance them.  Thus Bureau Xavier David worked to re-imagine the villa and its landscaping by carefully opening up views and circulation.

Most of the original structure was retained but windows were enlarged and some walls completely removed in favor of sliding doors should partitions be needed.  Both indoor & outdoor living spaces were generously expanded. Lastly, the swimming pool was rebuilt and enhanced with the addition of an infinity edge on two sides.
