The architect Sophie Dries has renovated a haussmanien apartment in Paris, in the Marais neighborhood. A double living room, a kitchen and a master suite (bedroom / bathroom), and two children’s bedrooms with their bathroom and playroom were created in this 100m2 space.
The quasi-totality of the layout was redesigned to bring together two originally separate apartments and all superfluous doorways have been removed and simplified.
Raw materials such as linens, carpets in natural wool, light fixtures in ceramics and silver give warmth to the noble materials in place: herringbone parquet flooring, marble fireplace and floral moldings.
The classic spaces of the double living room is counterbalanced with street art collection of the property owners (Banksy, Jon One, Space Invaders, Obey ...), pieces by some of the greatest names in vintage design, such as Hans Wegner, Eero Saarinen and Charlotte Perriand, and also more recent pieces from the 1990s by Philippe Starck, among others.
