The apartment of Carole and Robin is located on the ground floor of a mansion of the XVIIth arrondissement in Paris. Taking advantage of a private garden with terrace, when the family grew, Carole and Robin preferred to buy the apartment on the 1st floor to accommodate the children’s room rather than move.

The main challenge of this renovation was
 to find the place of a staircase as discreet 
as possible. The work was delivered as 
a screw-in kit. This technique allowed us 
to produce in the workshop a
 thermo lacquered paint, much more
 resistant than a painting done on the spot. The use of metal offered a light writing to the work with whose thickness does 
not exceed 25mm! 
The partnership architect / artisan / engineer allowed to realize a technical feat 
by suspending the staircase to the upper floor!

As often in Paris, space is precious. Although they are appreciable, the storage spaces cause loss of habitable surface. 
We imagined a large piece of furniture. 7 meters long for 60 cm deep, and suspended at 2.10 meters from the ground.
 It thus occupies no square meter!

In the child’s room, the distinction
 of two spaces allows the two brothers 
to define their respective territories.
 This old bourgeois building is composed of architectural elements: solid wood
doors, enamelled handles, moldings, 
rails, rosettes. We have tried through our 
project to conserve and magnify
 these elements. For example, the blue 
partition in the children’s room is not 
continuous up to the ceiling. It ensures 
the separation between the rooms and 
the staircase. It houses a glass floor that 
allows daylight on the steps. It allows 
to preserve and to stage the old molding 
making the turn of the piece!

▼儿童房,隔墙与天花间留有空隙,阳光可以照到楼梯,partition of the children’s room is not continuous which allows light to the stairs


▼通过墙面颜色和铺地材质将儿童房分成两个空间,children’s room is defined into two spaces by different wall colors and floorings
