Pierre Cardin's 1200 m² bubble house style Palais Bulles, on the Mediterranean coast, in Théoule-sur-Mer in the Massif de l'Esterel, was designed by the architect Antti Lovag.
Built between 1975 and 1989, it includes a thousand portholes.
The architect wanted to return to the roots, to the ancestral habitats: the caves, the troglodyte habitat.
Everything, from the floor to the ceiling, from the outside to the inside, follows spherical forms.
Pierre Cardin evokes the sensuality of a female body.
This astonishing villa was listed as a historical monument by the Ministry of Culture in 1998.
Guided tour of the house
- A reception room that can accommodate 350 people seated,
- A panoramic lounge,
- Ten suites, each original, all decorated by contemporary artists,
- A swimming pool, ponds and a garden on a space of 8 500 m²,
- An open-air amphitheater of 370 m² and 500 seats.
All the decoration is also conceived with custom-made furniture that matches the architecture of the place.
This ochre-colored house blends perfectly into the site and blends in with the color of the Esterel hills.
Pierre Cardin owns another amazing home, the Château du Marquis de Sade, in the Vaucluse.
