A modern Haussmannian

Posted on Wed, 10 Nov 2021 by midcenturyjo

“Micro-architecture & play on patterns/materials … Archetypal forms underline how a modern family uses the space, while respecting its Haussmannian architecture. Monolithic settings made from noble materials are complemented by furniture specially designed for the space, such as the monumental dining table of 3.5m created for the rotunda of the dining room. Or, in the master suite, where the graphic wardrobe made of wood marquetry counterbalances the bed, like a pictorial work in a vast room.”

In other words a play on volume and space, new and oversized within a traditional Parisian apartment.  The historical shell remains while modern living spaces are delineated with colour and material blocking as well as simplified geometric repeats. R.O.F flat by Paris-based creative studio Pool.
