Paris Flat was recently completed by Julien Joly Architecture.
Description by Julien Joly: A small apartment, three windows, a remote entrance. The kitchen is moved back to provide the bedroom with natural daylight and good ventilation. From the entrance to the living-room, a winding path distributes efficiently the secondary rooms such as the bedroom, the bathroom, the kitchen and the office. Wood in this project is not veneers but solid – used as raw material in the form of spruce cleats.
Each room is a different inside that is connected on its own way to the whole. The office sees through the wood cleats. The kitchen is a drop-shaped dead-end. The bedroom is the only room with two doors. The bathroom is an inside made of pearly ceramic, lit by a borrowed light.
In this trimmed surface, the overall sense of grandeur is not to be found in the size, but arises from the complexity of relationships between the rooms.
