This Appartment is a typical Haussmanian Parisian one with its mouldings, fish bone parquet and a linear long balcony. The whole concept was to create some contemporary architecture, a light element that would allow to preserve all the existing historical elements that confer a strong character to the place while unveiling new uses and a new appreciation of space, suited to its 21st century inhabitants.Preserving the layers of history while giving a strong contemporary identity. That was the challenge. The answer to that is a wood ribbon that circulates through the bearing molded walls.
The main bathroom of the apartment has a unit and washbasin from the Forma collection designed by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, and a mirror from the Origin collection.
