Text description provided by the architects. The challenge was to furnish a 100 sqm space “casco” in a spirit “loft” , within a tiny budget. In order to preserve crossing spaces and to bring depth into the views, the idea was simple: to insert all the technical and functional elements in a piece of furniture, placed itself all along the side wall. Then, we put a central volume (bathroom) in the middle of the loft. To this one are grafted a designed furniture (as a Hi-Fi corner in the living room, a desk and a library) which induces separation between two distinct spaces (bedroom on one side, office/guest room on the other).

There is also a concept of modularity via a large sliding door over all the width of the apartment, making it possible to close and open spaces. As conclusion, the room is raised by a estrade, which confers to him its own space statute in relation with the other places of the loft. Thinking at the economy, grounds and ceilings are left rough as such without any modification. The will is to offer an installation of furniture which organize the space. This space wants to be sober, purified, emphasized by specific keys of color and the texture of the existing ground.
