Description:

The project idea was to put forth by the young couple, in their thirties, was to work for their 100m² space in Neuilly into a purified, minimalist and welcoming style. The Frédéric Flanquart agency game out with the idea of an open space facing the exterior to maximize the natural light and benefit from the views offered by the bay windows, as well as an elegant and functional redesign of the room.

The couple had full confidence in the work of the agency, allowing Flanquart control over the entirety of the project from creative direction to the final product.

The agency played with lighting and other contrasts. Shadow play, mirror play, and perspectives catch the eye of the visitors as they step into the apartment. Attracted by vanishing points, the eye is guided by the strong materials that make up the renovation: the aged oak floors balance with the metallic frames enclosing the windows. From the living room to the dining room, the volumes are magnified by the effects of superposed white and grey. Full and straight lines give the ensemble a dynamic equilibrium.

Arranged into a master suite with bathroom, dressing room and bedroom, the space for night time is designed for calm and relaxation. Grey tones softly set the stage: the simplicity of the selected furnishings are creating an elegant harmony. The adjoining bathroom is covered by mosaic tiles, giving a warm feeling.
