You find yourself in a magnificent space, with ceilings soaring almost five metres overhead, decorated with opulent hand-crafted glass chandeliers and custom-made furniture and laid with fine-grained, solid wood flooring. It’s hard to believe you’re deep under the ground, surrounded by thick layers of reinforced concrete – especially when you catch the scent of fresh flowers from the inner garden. Welcome home. You have truly arrived.
Optional: inner garden, cinema, swimming pool, art gallery gym, sauna, staff quartersPlay video
L’Héritage is designed by leading French architect Marc Prigent, who trained at the École Boulle in Paris and runs his own practice west of the city.
He describes L’Héritage as ‘something entirely beyond any brief we have received for a secure space. It’s designed, ideated and created without compromise to be worthy of our clients and the objects they seek to enjoy, preserve and protect.’ His vision is to create the most secure residential spaces in the world, spaces of absolute purpose, engineering integrity and state-of-the-art technology. But they must also be a beautiful and cosseting environment for the owner: in Marc’s world, function does not have to mean compromise in elegance and style.Play video
