From the architect. Stéphane Chalmeau shared with us this great Penthouse refurbishment made by french architects Avignon et Clouet in Nantes, France, giving great sunlight to the interiors using glass divisions instead of solid walls and including an indoor pool with an amazing view to the city.

I live in Nantes, not far away from this building that has a wonderful view on the Loire and the city. But, even thought this is a very good (and expensive) work of those architects, what's the use of it if no one ever lives in ? I've never seen anybody at the windows, any lights at night.

1st_arch · February 10, 2010

I like the stair and the external view
I can't imagine the spaces without the plan
It seems simple

zitoon · February 09, 2010

I've seen that building in some magazine.
That's a very good job !!!
Congratulations you two!

Nice pool!

What are the dimensions of the pool? Anyone know or good guess?

Length x width

thx in advance

voisindeville · February 10, 2010 05:21 PM

As I can see this building almost every day, I can tell that the pool is about 12 meters long, not more than 2.5 meters large and about 1 meter deep. A place to swimm alone.

freaky french

I'd feel like I was living inside a television.

Hmmm. I have a big issue with the stairs. I wonder how much weight each step could handle. I'm a big guy, and I can already imagine myself breaking one of the steps!

Via @ArchDaily, a penthouse remodel in France with all glass walls and the most amazing pool

Pity all that money couldn't buy a decent floor-to-ceiling height.

Trevdor · February 08, 2010

I liked the stair until I saw it retracted. That just makes it seem kitschy, like the rest of this project. It looks like an overpriced hotel room.

that's what she · February 08, 2010

like the stairs...everything else is really NORMAL

Andy · February 07, 2010

Pretty pictures, but it's hard to make sense of the space without floorplans. Is there some reason they were omitted?

sullka · February 08, 2010 08:12 PM

errrrrr...because the architects didn't send them?

claudem · February 07, 2010

a glorified public bathroom! hate those wc partitions

eb · February 07, 2010

is it really architecture, without floor plans and sections?

GS · February 07, 2010

what if the power goes out and the stairs are left in the closed position?

flor · February 09, 2010 02:19 AM

you die.

Love it. Views from everywhere. Great concept. Beautiful execution.

It must feel good to be a banker...

Dustin · February 06, 2010

It seems like a great layout but I hate the materials employed. Everything looks like plastic. It's like living in a hospital.
The retracted stairs are cool... but probably not necessary with better planning.

Francesco · February 06, 2010

I don't like it

Wow.. a retracted stairs that is a really cool idea. No floor plans?
