The by Stephane Malka Architecture near the busy urban streets of Paris has been designed as a modern student residence. The construction is just a remodeling — without changing its original traits — of a pre-existent building. The only things new here are some wooden palettes which impart a new outlook to this structure.
The interior of ‘Loft Apartment’ imparts aesthetics as well as a contemporary outlook altogether. Right from the entrance you would be invited by a sequence of bright colored paintings and this seems to be most distinguishable trait of this contemporary building.
The house is essentially simple and glass doors and windows virtually blur differences between inside and outside. All units have been decorated with marvelous furniture and natural decorative items. Wooden floors walls and pebbles on courtyard offers exquisite visual treat. Presentation center Butterfly house Gable house Cascade house Garden house Visor house Courtyard house Pavillion house Lantern house Meadow house are the various units featured in this tremendous project.
The extremely high ceilings in the living area make a roomy and grandiose statement. The hanging globe lamps accentuate this height even further. The flight of stairs with a landing is neatly placed against a wall that occupies a minimum of space allowing full use of the ground floor without a big visual intrusion.
Flooded by light through the glass side and featuring skylights and round windows the partly hidden structure benefits from a natural glow complimented by a carefully designed lighting system. An old jaguar car lives its second life as a bookshelf in the kitchen.
The residence ensures a comfy stay to its residents and believes that privacy is an inevitable part of luxury. Unlike a conventional modern residence it offers extra calm and tranquility. Do you like the Nettleton 199’s design?
According to the architect team remodeling was done on the parent building to increase the living space. They included four luxurious bedrooms and a large entertainment area in the original building. Since the original building was flat-roofed a vertical expansion was a viable option for the future. With the sliding and stacking doors and glassy windows the difference between internal and external areas are dissolved considerably giving the home an urban feel while retaining natural openness.
