ATTIC APARTMENT - 2016
RUE DE L'UNIVERSITÉ - PARIS, FRANCE - 70m²
The architect Sophie Dries has renovated a 70m² apartment under the Parisian charming roofs, for the young film artist, Zoe Le Ber.
Located in the beautiful Hôtel Particulier d’Aligre, on 15 Rue de L’Université Paris 7, Zoe asked Sophie Dries to open the multiple small spaces of the apartment and give it a contemporary spirit without opulence, including vintage pieces the owner had gathered from her several trips.
Matching the owner's spirit, the architect wanted to emphasize the spirit of place (deus loci) and so give a purist style, using raw natural materials : the floor terracotta tiles and the oak beams of the origins have been restored and enlighted, the kitchen is now open with a wood birch mat finish and the large library and its long bench, have made this apartment more functional and bright.
