French architecture studio RAUM has arranged a cluster of holiday apartments in Brittany around terraces that are connected by small alleys (+ slideshows).
The clients for the project were a couple who asked RAUM to create two holiday homes with adjoining studio flats on the Quiberon peninsula, which can be rented by one or more families.
The architects designed the buildings around a series of outdoor spaces, linked by passages that can be transformed from public to private areas by closing gates.
Interiors are given a minimal treatment to focus attention on the terraces, and all of the ground floor living rooms feature sliding doors that open onto the decking outside.
A small building in the southwest corner of the site houses one of the studio flats, while another is located above the garage.
Wooden flooring is used throughout the interiors and also creates a connection with the external decking.
Other holiday homes that have appeared on Dezeen this summer include a house in the Stockholm archipelago with a zig-zagging concrete roofline, and a building inserted into the ruins of a castle in England that won this year's Stirling Prize. See more holiday homes »
