The feet in the water of the Goudes, a corner of Marseilles famous for its creeks and its fishing port with the pagnolesque atmosphere, this former diving school is transformed, this July, into a snorkel, a new hotel of character. Decorated by Marion Mailaender, an architect of sure taste, who grew up not far away, in the radiant city of Le Corbusier, the place gathers five rooms and a restaurant. Before a panorama of indisputable beauty, luxury lies in an art of living with refreshing simplicity.
The architect was inspired by what surrounds him: the Goudes and its very unique vernacular architecture. But also modernist cabanons, such as that of Le Corbusier in Roquebrune-sur-Argens and the bar-restaurant L 'Etoile de Mer.
Materials and colours are natural. Limestone, lime, terracotta, wood… The architect favored materials that skate. As for the colors, they come from works, like the fresco, in the entrance, which was realized by the Southway Studio collective, while some objects like the bar stools are green washed by the sun. And outside, on the rocks, the yellow and white striped mattresses energize the whole.
