An eclectic oasis in the city of Paris

A floor for each family member…

Since nothing remained of the original decor, it was rather a chance for the architects who played with the classic codes to find the eighteenth spirit of this place in Paris again. The owner took part in providing with their coup de coeur pieces en interesting mix of contemporary style with some vintage elements such as the jean Prouvé chairs in the kitchen.

Built in 1718 , this should be at the time the refuge of the architect Lepas – Dubuisson , designer of several hotels of aristocratic Faubourg Saint- Germain. The building became a school but at the end of the last century, regained its primary function : to be a family home. What a treat to have your very own floor and use this kitchen and garden as a common family meeting point!

Here goes another former school, which has undergone an amazing renovation and shows a nice story behind.

    The floating cloud effect lighting is quite wonderful making the most of the ceiling height without dominating the room.
