High five”, an expression borrowed from the realm of sports, represents the interaction between multiple individuals celebrating the achievement of a common goal. This kind of team spirit is precisely what architect Yann Melan wished to infuse into his firm High Five Architecture, located in Fréjus on the Côte d’Azur. 

The architect’s roots lie in the Haut Var region of Provence, which sparked his interest in traditional Provençal architecture and its ingenuity. This curiosity has inspired Yann Melan to undertake several studies in mediterranean architecture and its distinctive characteristics.

The architect subsequently developed his knowledge of the principles and aesthetic codes of contemporary architecture through his years of experience working with firms in Marseille and Saint Raphaël.

Through these personal and professional experiences, Yann Melan honed his sensibility for architecture with consideration for the past, present and future. This vision is driven by primary values including respect for the site, adaptation to the climate, the reinterpretation of traditional architectural codes, coherence between interior and exterior, functionality and comfort, and privileging the use of natural and locally-sourced materials. 

This approach, that could draw comparisons to the tenets of critical regionalism of the late 20th century, in fact aspires to combine the functional and aesthetic principles of contemporary architecture with regional customs and typology. The architect’s goal is to design buildings pleasing to the senses that fully satisfy your expectations. 

With his dynamic energy and openness to the world and the future, Yann Melan creates elegant architecture of quality that takes into account current issues concerning urban planning and respect for the environment.
