This 19th century house, nestled in a leafy suburb of Paris, looks like it has come straight from the pages of a story book. The shingled roof, timber beam exterior and chimneys all add to the romantic character of the home and through a careful renovation, the team at 05 AM Arqitectura have ensured that the interiors have retained their original architectural narrative and magic while at the same time bringing into focus 21st century style with the addition of sharp materials, sleek joinery and luxe furnishings.
Through careful assessment the team was able to adapt the program of the house to create better functionality and flow. The assessment also gave rise to original details which had been forgotten over the years, such as the alcoves in the bedrooms, which were restored. Throughout, marble, warm timbers and white have been used to create visual harmony with the children’s bedrooms being the only step away from this palate with soft colours evoking the romanticism of the fairy tale exterior.
