The maid’s chambre (chambre de bonne) of a 1600’s palace along the Seine at the point of Pont Neuf, near the flower and bird markets, is the heart of this project. It was fundamental to the project to understand the residential character the location held in order re-enliven it and make it blossom. The attic was covered under a false ceiling that hid the wooden trusses. Demolishment of the false ceiling allowed not only to recuperate height necessary to render the space livable but also to allow the atmosphere of the neighbourhood to enter, transforming a crumbling and unattended environment into a luminous and joyful space. The fabrics in nuanced shades of green and turquoise, like fresh brushstrokes interplay with the slender elements of brass and iron furniture crafted by our Italian artisans. The meticulous work of cleaning the beams, an elegant choice of industrial chic in the furnishings, in the textures and with the colour tones, define a fully functional space that despite the small dimensions of the pied-à-terre, retains above all, its charm.
