This beautiful contemporary apartment is located on Rue de Lille, Paris, France and was designed in 2014 by the spamroom architectural practice to bring up to date a 19th century space with a total surface of 100 square meters.
The owner is a fashion designer and collector of African art so the aesthetic tries to suit the needs of the inhabitant. The project has an open layout which could also serve as a place where intimate industry events could be hosted.
There are two main areas, one with the living room, kitchen and guest WC and another one where the master bedroom, dressing room, guest bedroom are located with bathrooms for each bedroom. The partition walls have been removed and there is a vestibule to ease transition between the two areas.
The building plan is arranged around two interior courtyards so each room has a window toward the outdoors to improve the natural light and ventilation. The interior is bright and the original oak chevron parquet floor was removed with planks of white washed Douglas fir.
