Colourful and cheerful house
This colourful and cheerful town house located in Suresnes, a stone’s throw from Paris, had a beautiful base, a millstone with quality construction and materials as well as a good distribution of spaces.
An open and joyful atmosphere was to reflect the dynamic family lifestyle by adapting to the children, the desire to receive and work at home.
In this project the request was to set up a colour chart that was cheerful and varied without it becoming invasive or tiring over time.
Additional storage space was a need everywhere. The aesthetic design of the spaces required many custom-made furniture. Thus, a library and an office/library for the living room, storage space for the fireplace, storage space for children at the entrance and mezzanine beds for 2 children have been designed by the agency to best meet these needs.
The sanitary facilities, kitchen and laundry room have also been renovated to make them functional and pleasant to live in. The family was very sensitive to ecology. Whenever possible materials and equipments were reused. For example the old bathroom ceramics from the seventies have been reused. New double glazed wooden windows were chosen from French manufacture in order to respect as possible the old ones. Moreover the insulation of the attic is made of natural cork. In all areas, the choice of solutions has always been guided by ecology and sustainable development.
All the custom-made furniture for this project was, according to the clients’ specifications, made in France in the Jura.
For the children’s rooms we designed mezzanine beds with storage space underneath. Each bed has a wardrobe, large drawers and an integrated bookcase.
