PietriArchitectes have designed the Harbour Master’s office, at a marina in La Londe-les-Maures, France. The form of the building is reminiscent of a cruise ship or ferry boat.

Located along the Var coast, opposite the fort Brégançon, the harbor master of La Londe-les-Maures enjoys an exceptional location.

The project is organized in three trays, operating independently and replaces an existing aging and inappropriate building.

The architectural proposal is simple, in the continuity of the agency’s work: sleek shapes, softened angles and materials nobles such as wood and stainless steel in reference to the world sailor, always avoiding the metaphor of the boat .
